Subclavian steal syndrome occurs when the subclavian artery develops stenosis or total occlusion proximal to the vertebral artery branch. Coronary subclavian steal syndrome is a variant of subclavian steal syndrome and develops when the proximal subclavian artery narrows in patients with patent internal mammary patent artery grafts used in coronary artery bypass grafting. In this article we present a case of coronary-subclavian steal syndrome and its treatment.
