We present an interesting but high-risk case of an obese male patient aged 56 years with dextrocardia and a left diaphragmatic hernia. Anterior myocardial infarction was diagnosed in 1994, and the patient later presented with a history of unstable angina. The diagnosis for this chronic smoker was triple-vessel disease, impaired left ventricular function, chronic renal failure, chronic bronchitis, impaired lung function, pulmonary hypertension, hypertension, diabetes, and chronic active gastritis (EuroSCORE of 10). The patient underwent successful off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting with 3 saphenous vein grafts to the left anterior descending, obtuse marginal, and right posterior descending arteries. He was discharged home 8 days later.
