Abstract

Coronary-subclavian steal syndrome represents a reversal of blood flow in left internal mammary artery. The most common cause of the syndrome is atherosclerotic disease in the ipsilateral, proximal subclavian artery. We present a case of 72 years old male, who developed severe anginal and neurological complaints three years after coronary artery bypass graft surgery(CABG).
