Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Previous intrapericardial left pneumonectomy and irradiation necessitated an unorthodox, staged approach to myocardial revascularization in a patient with unstable angina pectoris, left main artery, and three- vessel coronary artery disease. A saphenous vein bypass graft was constructed from the descending thoracic aorta to the left anterior descending coronary artery via left thoracotomy, without cardiopulmonary bypass. Two days later the patient underwent stenting of the left main and circumflex coronary arteries. Recovery was uneventful.
