Dextrocardia ­with sit­us inver­sus tot­al­is is a ­rare con­gen­i­tal abnor­mal­ity of devel­op­ment involv­ing a ­left-hand­ed mal­ro­ta­tion of ­the vis­cer­al ­organs. The inci­dence of cor­o­nary ­artery dis­ease in ­this con­di­tion is prob­ably sim­i­lar to ­that in ­the gen­er­al pop­u­la­tion. We ­report here­in ­the ­case of a 62-­year-­old ­man ­with dex­tro­car­dia ­and sit­us inver­sus tot­al­is ­who under­went myo­car­dial revas­cu­lar­iza­tion by ­the ­use of ­right inter­nal mam­mary ­artery ­and radi­al ­artery.
