Intraoperative ­right ven­tric­u­lar infarc­tion imme­di­ate­ly ­after cor­o­nary ­artery ­bypass graft­ing is a ­rare and poten­tial­ly seri­ous com­pli­ca­tion. We ­report a ­case in ­which an addi­tion­al cor­o­nary ­artery ­bypass ­graft to a ­right ven­tric­u­lar ­branch ­with 99% sten­o­sis ­brought ­about recov­ery ­from pro­found ­acute ­right ven­tric­u­lar fail­ure. This ­case ­shows ­that com­plete revas­cu­lar­iza­tion to all graft­able ves­sels, includ­ing ­even the ­right ven­tric­u­lar ­branch, is man­da­to­ry for suc­cess­ful cor­o­nary ­artery ­bypass graft­ing.
