From the Department of Cardiovascular Surgery Tsukuba Medical Center Hospital, Tsukuba, Japan
The patient was a 72-year-old male with three-vessel coronary artery disease, chronic dissecting aneurysm of the ascending aorta with moderate aortic regurgitation, and abdominal aortic aneurysm 7 cm in diameter. Because staged procedure seemed to exacerbate the risk due to the remaining lesion, simultaneous procedures (double coronary artery bypass, aortic root remodeling, tube replacement of the ascending aorta and Y-graft replacement of the abdominal aneurysm) were performed. The patient recovered completely without any serious complication.
