abstract

  • Patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) often have concomitant coronary artery disease. In patients with large or symptomatic AAAs and symptomatic coronary artery disease, it may be necessary to address both problems simultaneously. We report a case series of five patients undergoing simultaneous off-pump coronary artery bypass and abdominal aortic reconstruction. Our series and a literature review indicate that simultaneous coronary artery bypass grafting on the beating heart and abdominal aortic surgery is safe and effective and has a low perioperative morbidity rate.
