Abstract The treatment of coarctation of aorta with an additional cardiac lesion in adults remains a difficult surgical challenge. We present here an alternative, two-stage, hybrid approach that combined stent repair of aortic coarctation followed by coronary artery bypass operation in an adult with critical coronary lesions and a poor ventricle. This method may be a potentially useful strategy in reducing the comorbidity of operation to both lesions.
