Significant hemodynamic alterations often occur during off-pump coronary artery bypass operations. Historically, left main coronary artery stenosis has been excluded from off-pump coronary artery bypass operations because of this concern. Many articles in recent times support off-pump operations in left main coronary artery (LMCA) stenosis. We describe here a safe and effective method to reduce the incidence of hemodynamic changes during beating heart surgery in patients with LMCA stenosis.
