Even in young non-diabetic patients with single internal mammary artery, the risk for mediastinitis still exists. Free latissimus dorsi myocutaneus flap was chosen to repair the mediastinal defect and to protect the aortic patch repair for this case with pseudoaneurysm of the aorta after coronary artery bypass. Although the early result was successful, pseudoaneurysm recurred. Lifelong antibiotic therapy could be useful in order to prevent the recurrence of this fatal complication.
