A 59-year-old man presented with complaints of giddiness caused by changes in body position, an unsteady gait, daily episodes of vision loss, breathlessness, and chest pain flowing minor physical exertion. Computed tomography revealed an occlusion of the right common carotid artery, a critical stenosis of the left common carotid artery, and a significant stenosis of the left internal carotid artery. A coronarography detected a stenosis of the left main trunk and a triple coronary artery obstructive disease. A simultaneous aortic-bicarotid bifurcation prosthesis and coronary artery bypass grafting were performed. The patient showed a satisfactory postoperative outcome.
