A 65-year-old female with catecholamine-dependent ischemic cardiomyopathy was admitted to our hospital. Preoperative examination revealed severe triple vessel coronary artery disease, severe mitral valve regurgitation and left ventricular (LV) dilatation associated with low ejection fraction. Coronary artery bypass grafting with four distal anastomoses, mitral valve plasty using original papillary muscle application method, LV volume reduction using overlapping method and biventricular pacing were performed. Postoperative course was uneventful and quality of life at 2 years after surgery was good. Active combined surgery has the possibility of improving the outcome of patients with severe ischemic cardiomyopathy.
