Abstract

We report a combined carotid endarterectomy and coronary revascularization surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass using bivalirudin for systemic anticoagulation in a patient with a positive titer for the heparin-platelet factor 4 antibody. The patient experienced procedural success for both the carotid and coronary surgeries. Increased blood and blood product transfusion was required postoperatively.
