Abstract

Coronary endarterectomy is a controversial procedure. It has got many supporters and enemies among cardiac surgeons. It is very rare, particularly while performing off pump coronary artery bypass grafting. We present a case of a 50-year-old man who underwent coronary artery stenting and than has been admitted to surgery because of the restenosis in coronary arteries. During the surgery four arteries have been grafted. At the same time we performed four endarteriectomies in these vessels. No major problem was observed. We describe our technique and briefly present current literature regarding this problem.
