Myocardial revascularization among patients with porcelain aorta is a real dilemma regarding bypass technique, choice of conduit and site of proximal anastomosis. The experience reported here is about two cases of patients (aged 28 and 73 years) with porcelain aorta. Both patients had successful myocardial revascularization using beating heart technique. The younger patient had much more complicated surgical approach.
