Abstract

Ventricular perforation during exposure of an intramyocardial left anterior descending artery (LAD) in preparation for coronary artery bypass grafting is a known surgical complication. In this report, we discuss the management of this complication which avoids closure of the LAD and a myocardial infarction.
