We report a case of coronary sinus (CS) injury with a retrograde cardioplegia catheter and repair that compromised CS patency. This resulted in acute global cardiac dysfunction shortly after weaning from bypass, which reversed after patch repair with confirmed CS patency. The case report shows that acute CS occlusion may not be tolerated in some humans.
