We report successful coronary artery bypass grafting through a lower partial sternotomy for a patient with a tracheostoma. He required a tracheotomy for serious laryngeal edema which developed during anesthetic induction prior to elective conventional coronary surgery. A safe alternative approach, comprising a lower midline skin incision with a lower partial sternotomy distant from the stoma, facilitated coronary artery bypass grafting to the left and right coronary arteries after four weeks.
