Abstract

We describe a case of stenting to a distal left anterior descending artery stenosis via the native vessel aided by contrast injection via a left internal mammary artery graft. This dual visualization technique allows good distal vessel opacification whilst minimising instrumentation of the internal mammary artery and its associated risks.
