Reoperative coronary artery bypass grafting procedure presents a particularly challenging situation for cardiac surgeons. Technical obstacles and operative risks still exceed those of primary procedures. We report a case of a reoperative myocardial revascularization in a 61-year-old woman, in whom the pedicled right gastroepiploic artery was used to bypass the right coronary artery without cardiopulmonary bypass. Postoperative angiographic study before discharge of the patient and transcutaneous Doppler echocardiography controls at two and eleven months showed a good patency of the right gastroepiploic artery graft.
