Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) in a patient with tracheostoma is challenging because the tracheostoma is a significant risk factor for surgical site infections (SSI). Bilateral internal thoracic artery (BITA) harvesting has been also considered as a risk factor. Other risk factors include hemodialysis (HD) and diabetes mellitus (DM). On the other hand, the superiority of BITA in terms of patency and long term results in CABG is generally accepted. It is still controversial issue whether we should choose BITA or single ITA CABG in patients with risk factors of SSI. We report a case of 64-year-old male with a permanent tracheostoma, HD and DM, who underwent CABG. We concentrated on complete revascularization and used BITA by full sternotomy for better long-term results. We used several anti-infection strategies in addition to routine perioperative wound management and there were no wound complications during hospitalization and after 24 months of follow-up.
