Abstract

Survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest is influenced by various factors. We performed an emergency coronary artery bypass grafting for unstable angina immediately after an out of hospital cardiopulmonary arrest. A 73-year-old man with a history of percutaneous coronary intervention who experienced an out of hospital cardiopulmonary arrest was transported to our hospital. He received an emergency coronary artery bypass graft after bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and transferred to the emergency department and catheter laboratory within 7h from the initial event. Successful bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation with automated external defibrillation and cooperation among the emergency physicians, cardiologists and surgeons were paramount to the successful outcome.
