Coronary bypass surgery in patient with malaria.


A 65-year-old man with unstable angina pectoris developed malaria prior to coronary artery bypass grafting. After 3 weeks on antimalarial therapy, left internal mammary artery-to-left anterior descending artery anastomosis was performed on the beating heart to avoid the effects of cardiopulmonary bypass. There was no complication in the early postoperative period.
