Abstract: The authors report an unusual complication of acute infective endocarditis found in a 70-year-old man with a previous history of two cardiac surgery procedures. During median sternotomy, a massive bleeding occurred. The bleeding was contained within the mediastinum and originated from the 10-year-old anastomosis of the saphenous vein to a composite graft, which was completely detached due to infective endocarditis of the aortic graft.
