The utility of intra-arterial Doppler flow in assessing internal mammary artery (IMA) bypass grafts has infrequently been reported. Two patients are described in which Doppler evaluation of the IMA graft provided valuable diagnostic information prior to intervention. Also provided is a review of the available literature concerning evaluation of pathology in IMA grafts.
