Abstract

Off-pump coronary-coronary bypass grafting (CABG) is a main treatment for coronary artery disease and CCBG is one kind of CABG. CCBG is defined as bypass between two segments of the same coronary artery or between different coronary arteries. We present here a case of CCBG using the off-pump technique. The patient had extensive aortic atherosclerosis and both saphenous veins were varicose and therefore only short portions were usable. For some special patients, it is possible to achieve better long-term results and quality of life by CCBG. For surgical approaches, strategy must come before tactics.
