We ­describe the ­long-­term ­results of a ­case of com­plete myo­car­dial revas­cu­lar­iza­tion ­with arte­rial con­duit ­employing ­also lat­eral ­costal ­artery (LCA). A ­fifty-­four-­year-old man under­went revas­cu­lar­iza­tion ­with the ­implant of ­right ­internal ­artery mam­mary (­RIMA) on the ­second por­tion of the ­right cor­o­nary ­artery (RCA), of the ­left ­internal mam­mary (­LIMA) on the ­left ­artery descen­dent (LAD) and of LCA on the ­obtuse mar­ginal ­arteries. The post­op­er­a­tive ­course was ­uneventful and a ­twelve-­month post­op­er­a­tive cor­o­nary angio­graphy ­showed arte­rial con­duits to be func­tioning ­well. LCA is ­another ­source for com­plete myo­car­dial revas­cu­lar­iza­tion ­with arte­rial con­duits.
