          Abstract

          Angina pectoris resulting from the coronary-subclavian steal syndrome is a rare phenomenon with only 10 previously reported cases. However, with the increasing use of the internal mammary artery in the coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) procedure it may be encountered more frequently in the future. We report our recent experience with coronary-subclavian steal syndrome after CABG with 2 patients in whom complete relief from angina pectoris was obtained following bypass of a proximal subclavian artery occlusion in one patient and improvement of angina in the other. A review of the relevant literature is also presented.
