Coronary arterial bypass procedures concommitant with pneumonectomy have with high mortality rate and prolonged intensive care stay. In particular, on-pump coronary arterial bypass grafting has a high mortaity and morbidity. To avoid the side effects of cardiopulmonary bypass, off-pump procedures are favored over on-pump coronary arterial bypass grafting. We performed a left pneumonectomy via left thoracotomy, then proceed to off-pump coronary arterial bypass grafting to the left anterior descending artery and first diagonal artery using a saphenous “Y” graft with its proximal anastomosis on the descending aorta to a 70 years old male patient. In his first month postoperatively, patient has a normal physical activity.
