Saphenous vein (SV) bypass is a commonly used technique in cardiovascular bypass surgery. True aneurysmal dilatation of arterialised autologous vein graft is a rare complication. The majority of reported occurrences have been in coronary artery bypass grafts (CABG) and infra-inguinal arterial surgery. Thus far, reported vein graft aneurysms have occurred singularly and in isolation. Here we report the first case of multiple fusiform aneurysms of an axillo-carotid saphenous vein graft treated with re-do bypass surgery.
