Coronary Artery Bypass Graft in a Patient with Dextrocardia with Situs Inversus: A Case Report
Asian Journal of Case Reports in Surgery,
Coronary Artery revascularization commonly called Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) creates a new route around narrowed and blocked coronaries, allowing sufficient blood flow to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the heart muscle. Dextrocardia with Situs inversus is a rare congenital abnormality with the apex of the heart on the right side of the body in contrast to the normal heart where the apex is oriented to the left. Though technically challenging CABG in dextrocardia yields a good outcome. We are reporting a case of 55 years male with Coronary artery disease with dextrocardia with Situs inversus who underwent CABG, which is also one of the rerest cases performed to date.
