Myocardial revascularization and bilateral lung transplantation without cardiopulmonary bypass

Published in European Journal of Cardio-thoracic Surgery. 2001, vol. 20, no. 5, p. 1042-4
Abstract Coronary artery disease is occasionally encountered in lung transplant recipients and is a risk factor for perioperative complications and poor survival. Besides combined heart-lung transplantation, various techniques of myocardial revascularization can be performed before, or at the time of lung transplantation. We report herein a patient with end-stage bronchoemphysema and two-vessel coronary disease who underwent 'off-pump' coronary artery bypass graft immediately followed by bilateral lung transplantation.
