A coexisting coronary heart disease may increase the operative mortality and morbidity rates of lung resection. A simultaneous or a two-stage procedure using myocardial revascularization prior to the pulmonary resection may reduce the postoperative morbidity and mortality. Herein, we present a 65-year-old male case of a lung adenocarcinoma in whom a simultaneous coronary artery bypass grafting on a beating heart and right upper lobectomy was performed.
