Suitable time for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) after acute myocardial infarction (AMI) remains controversial. Many randomized studies have shown that primary angioplasty in AMI may result in better results compared with fibrinolytic therapy and CABG. We herewith report a case of a 72-yearold patient with fracture of femur who sustained massive myocardial infarction (MI). Hybrid cardiac surgery which combines percutaneous coronary intervention and CABG was performed on him.
