We present the of a 65-year-old patient with a history of medicated coronary stent followed by internal mammary artery bypass towards the anterior descending artery using a native vessel competing for blood flow with a lateral costal artery with postoperative angina. We treated our patient successfully with VATS approach and using thoracoscopic ligation with successful resolution of postoperative angina.
