A 63-year-old man with active COVID-19 infection and a history of coronary artery bypass grafting presented with acute thrombotic occlusion of saphenous venous graft which was anastomosed to the left anterior descending artery. Initial antegrade approach, complicated by a small leakage in the distal left anterior descending artery, was later converted to a retro-grade approach via occluded saphenous vein graft. After successful stenting, TIMI 3 flow was achieved.
