Abstract Coronary vein grafts develop accelerated atherosclerosis after aortocoronary bypass surgery. Previous pathologic studies have suggested that the morphologic appearance of atherosclerotic lesions in saphenous vein grafts may have subtle differences compared with those of native coronary arteries and may be more prone to disruption and thrombus formation. However, a comparative in vivo assessment of the angioscopic morphology differences between these two types of vessels has not been reported previously. We compared the angioscopic lesion morphology of native coronary arteries and saphenous vein grafts in patients with unstable angina.
