Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) in patients with severe pectus excavatum is a surgical challenge. A two-stage correction of sternal deformities and cardiac lesions has been described and myocardial revascularization through a left lateral thoracotomy is a valid alternative in urgent situations. We report a one-stage repair of severe pectus excavatum and CABG with the use of bilateral internal thoracic arteries in a young patient requiring urgent myocardial revascularization. The technical aspects and operative consideration are discussed. Copyright (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V.
