Abstract The prevalence of coronary artery disease in patients with aortic aneurysm is high. As an antecedent percutaneous coronary intervention with antiplatelet therapy may cause a rupture of aortic aneurysm, concomitant treatment for aortic arch aneurysm and coronary artery disease is recommended. We report a technique of a combined procedure of antegrade endovascular repair with aortic arch debranching and off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting. (J Card Surg 2012;27:518-520)
