Vasospasm following balloon angioplasty of gastroepiploic artery bypass grafts can be prevented or reversed with vasodilators. In our patient, stent deployment for ostial stenosis of a free gastroepiploic artery graft was accompanied by severe, diffuse spasm and a change in graft configuration that required both intensive medical therapy and balloon angioplasty for resolution.
