MIILLER, Jean Carlo et al. Steal coronary-subclavian syndrome: case report and literature review. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.2, pp.166-170. ISSN 1677-5449.

The phenomenon of coronary-subclavian steal is defined as the reversed blood flow in a coronary artery, through internal mammary artery graft towards medial-distal subclavian artery, which happens due to severe stenosis or total occlusion of the proximal portion of the latter. It is a rare but significant cause of cardiac ischemia after coronary artery bypass surgery and it can cause a syndrome of the same name and with typical manifestations. We have reported the case of a patient with this disease, who underwent percutaneous angioplasty with stent implantation, and we also reviewed the literature on the subject.

Palabras clave : subclavian artery; subclavian steal syndrome; coronary-subclavian steal syndrome.
