A combination of aortic arch debranching and off-pump coronary artery bypass
Journal of Cardiac Surgery, 06/15/2012
Hiraoka A et al. – The prevalence of coronary artery disease in patients with aortic aneurysm is high. As an antecedent percutaneous coronary intervention with antiplatelet therapy may cause a rupture of aortic aneurysm, concomitant treatment for aortic arch aneurysm and coronary artery disease is recommended. Authros report a technique of a combined procedure of antegrade endovascular repair with aortic arch debranching and off–pump coronary artery bypass grafting.
