Recently the patient of the atherosclerotic disease associated with malignant disease has been increased. A 75-year-old man was referred to our section with an infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and a gastric cancer (GC). Preoperative coronary angiogram revealed the significant stenoses of the right coronary and the left anterior descending coronary artery. We selected the staged operation of off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) [OPCAB] and the concomitant surgery for the AAA and the GC. Operative invasion could decrease with the surgical procedure of the OPCAB and the concomitant surgery compared to the conventional CABG or the separate operation. We used the aortic connector system during OPCAB to prevent such the serious complications of the aortic dissection or the systemic embolism due to the calcified ascending aorta.
