Abstract

A 86-year-patient who had acute myocardial infarction and critical cardiogenic shock was diagnosed to have the left main trunk (LMT) and triple vessel disease. Emergent coronary artery bypass grafting to the left anterior descending artery was performed using saphenous vein graft without cardiopulmonary bypass through median sternotomy. On the 41st postoperative day, catheter intervention was performed to the remaining lesions by stenting of LMT and percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty to the right coronary artery lesions. Tl scintigraphy showed remarkable reduction of myocardial ischemia. Hybrid therapy is the effective new strategy for critical cases which cannot be successfully and securely treated by medical or surgical approach alone.
