Recurrence of anginal symptoms following coronary artery bypass surgery is usually secondary to graft closure or progression of native vessel disease. The present case demonstrates severe exercise-induced saphenous vein graft (SVG) spasm associated with transmural ischemia refractory to maximal vasodilator therapy. Symptoms resolved and exercise electrocardiography normalized following stenting of SVG regions demonstrating spasm. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
