Here we report triple coronary bypass procedure in a 12-year-old girl with familial homozygous hypercholesterolemia and extensive coronary atherosclerosis. She had successful cardiopulmonary resuscitation at home by her father 4 months before the operation. Total cholesterol level was 1300 mg/dL initially without antilipidemic treatment. Extensive three vessel disease with right coronary proximal stenosis and left coronary ostial stenoses was determined by angiography. Left internal thoracic artery, left radial artery, and saphenous vein grafts were used for coronary revascularization. Saphenous vein graft to right posterior descending artery, radial artery graft to obtuse marginal artery, and LITA to left anterior descending artery anastomoses were performed consecutively. Ten months after the operation, she is in good condition under intensive antilipidemic therapy and weekly lipid apheresis.
