We examined the technique and early outcomes of coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) with endarterectomy. In 2023, the single-center database identified 24 severe coronary disease patients undergoing CABG with coronary artery endarterectomy. The patients were in a selected cohort with a minimum of three grafts for the three main vessels. Patients’ mean age was 63.8 years. The mean number of grafts was 4.3. A coronary endarterectomy (CE) was performed on the right coronary artery in 45.8% of patients, the left anterior descending artery in 29.1%, the circumflex artery in 16.6%, and the diagonal artery in 29.1%. Aortic cross-clamp took 147.2 minutes, perfusion 180.9 minutes, mechanical ventilation 18.9 hours, and intensive care unit stay 4.8 days. Our in-hospital mortality rate was 8.3% with no technical complications. To achieve complete revascularization in patients with extensive coronary artery disease, CE should be considered an acceptable adjunct to CABG.
