Document Type


Publication Date



A 66-year-old male with a history most notable for coronary artery disease and coronary artery bypass grafting x 3 utilizing LIMA to 2nd diagonal, radial artery to 1st diagonal and his right gastroepiploic artery (GEA) to posterior descending artery presented with chest pain. His work-up included a cardiac catheterization that revealed a 90% stenosis at the origin of the celiac axis. A subsequent CTA confirmed this and noted moderate stenosis of his SMA as well as severe IMA stenosis. The patient was taken for mesenteric angiography by vascular surgery at which time he underwent balloon expandable stent placement in the celiac axis. The patient tolerated this procedure well and was noted to have an improvement in his symptoms postoperatively.
