Abstract

Patients who smoke are at risk of both coronary artery disease and lung cancer, but concomitant lesions of the heart and lung are uncommon. Management of these concomitant lesions is controversial because of the systemic side-effects of a cardiopulmonary by-pass (CPB) and the difficult approach of the lung. An off-pump coronary artery by-pass (OPCAB) can be a successful procedure in the combined treatment of lung cancer and cardiac disease. This study reports on a successful one-stage OPCAB grafting procedure with right upper lobe lobectomy for a primary lung cancer.
