To the editor: I am responding to a statement made by Farry and associates in a recent case report ("Development of Atherosclerosis in Saphenous Vein Coronary Bypass Graft," Ann Intern Med 85:478-479, 1976).
The authors state that the occurrence of atherosclerosis in aortocornary saphenous vein bypass grafts had not been described before their report. This is not true; our group in Milwaukee has previously reported several such instances (see references below).
