In this article, we present a patient who underwent coronary bypass, and had a postoperative ascending aorta injury. The aorta patch plasty and coronary graft which were previously placed were extended by using synthetic vascular graft, and anastomosed to the innominate artery under current conditions. The patient was discharged on postoperative 10th day. Dynamic computed tomography angiography on postoperative 90th day showed that both the vascular graft and the right coronary saphenous vein graft as well as the anastomosis were patent.
