Abstract

Intraabdominal complications during cardiopulmonary bypass are extremely rare, with an incidence of less than 1% in multiple retrospective studies. These complications are associated with a high mortality, and their rapid diagnosis is critical to the outcome of the patient. We present a case of spontaneous intraabdominal hemorrhage after combined carotid endarterectomy and four-vessel coronary artery bypass grafting, which was diagnosed through a diaphragmatic window.
