Abstract

A 9-year-old boy with clinical stage IIA Hodgkin's disease underwent radiotherapy to the neck and mediastinum. Twenty-two years later, he sought medical attention because of angina pectoris. Cardiac catheterization revealed proximally located high-grade stenoses of the left main, left anterior descending, circumflex, and right coronary arteries. He underwent coronary artery bypass grafting with use of the left internal mammary artery to the left anterior descending coronary artery and reversed saphenous vein grafts to the circumflex and right coronary arteries. The postoperative course was uncomplicated. Previous radiotherapy to the mediastinum should be considered a risk factor for the development of premature coronary artery disease. Surgical revascularization is the preferred method of management. A combination of an internal mammary artery graft and a saphenous vein graft should be used in young patients.
