Combined surgical repair for large abdominal aortic aneurysm and severe symptomatic coronary artery disease is a safe and effective procedure. Simultaneous operation for minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass and abdominal aortic aneurysm repair were performed on a 75-yr-old man. First, we harvested the right gastroepiploic artery and passed it through the diaphragma for the right coronary artery revascularization on the beating heart. We then repaired the large abdominal aortic aneurysm (8 cm in diameter) using a Dacron tubular Y-graft. Using the arterial graft and off-pump technique reduces operation time and prevents complications of cardiopulmonary bypass in elderly patients with large abdominal aortic aneurysm, while the combined approach shortens hospital stay and cost.
