Abstract

Off Pump CABG in a Case of Dextrocardia with Situs Inversus Totalis

Trivedi JK

Dextrocardia with Situs Inversus Totalis is a rare congenital abnormality with an incidence of 1:10000. The incidence of coronary artery disease is the same as that in the general population. Performing coronary artery bypass surgery on patients with Dextrocardia poses a more challenging task and requires some modifications and adjustments. It is recommended that the right internal mammary artery be the first choice of graft for the anterior descending artery for a "Situs Inversus" situation. We present a case of 60 years female who presented to us with breathlessness on mild exertion and was found to have Dextrocardia with Situs Inversus Totalis and was diagnosed to have CAD with double vessel disease and underwent successful off pump coronary artery bypass grafting
