BACKGROUND: Adults with congenital heart disease (CHD) and coronary artery disease (CAD) have unique clinical manifestation due to the coexistence of intracardiac anomalies and CAD. Case reports are rare in surgical management of CHD combined with CAD. Our goal is to study the outcome of surgical intervention of CHD and CAD concomitantly.
METHODS: From February 2002 to August 2009, 29 adult patients underwent coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) and surgical correction of CHD concomitantly. Congenital cardiac anomalies include atrial septal defect (ASD) in 21 cases, ventricular septal defect in four cases, atrioventricular septal defect in three cases, and cor triatriatum in one case. Coronary angiography demonstrated: one-vessel disease in 10 cases, two-vessel disease in 11 cases, and three-vessel disease in eight cases. Coronary revascularization and intracardiac anomalies were corrected with cardiopulmonary bypass in 23 cases. There were six patients who had off-pump coronary artery pass grafting (OPCAB) and intraoperative device closure of ASD.
RESULTS: One patient died of pulmonary infection and multiorgan failure. Follow-up time was from 2 to 89 months (mean, 42 ± 25 months). One patient with recurrent angina did not need intervention of the revascularization. Six patients who acquired OPCAB and intraoperative device closure of ASD had no complications after surgery.
CONCLUSIONS: Surgery for adult patients who had CHD with CAD was a safe and effective management. OPCAB with intraoperative device closure of ASD was a reasonable approach for some selective patients.
