Abstract:

We report a successful off pump coronary artery bypass case in a patient with a pre-operatively undiagnosed pheochromocytoma. The patient had no signs of ischemia intra- or post-operatively due to aggressive antihypertensive treatment. We would also like to emphasize the importance of using an adequate stabilizing device in order to safely perform anastomoses in a situation like this.
