Abstract

Coronary artery disease may coexist with aortoiliac occlusive disease, and concomitant revascularization procedures may be required. The ascending aorta may be used as the source of inflow to both the femoral and coronary arteries in patients who present with coronary artery disease and critical leg ischemia. We present here 2 patients in whom coronary artery bypass grafting and ascending aorta-to-bifemoral bypass operations were performed simultaneously.
