We herein report a case of third coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) using a bilateral radial artery T graft. There were patent grafts on the anterior aspect of the heart other than the occluded left internal thoracic artery to the left anterior descending (LAD) artery. A T shaped bilateral radial artery conduit was anastomosed from the left subclavian artery to the LAD and first diagonal branch through a left thoracotomy approach. Postoperative angiography demonstrated excellent flow of radial artery conduits. Left thoracotomy with the use of a bilateral radial artery T graft is a useful substitute for anterior re-sternotomy entry in redo CABG.
