Abstract

Performing cardiothoracic surgery on patients with advanced liver failure and liver cirrhosis is high‑risk for patients. Coronary artery bypass grafting is the most effective treatment for patients with liver failure that is complicated with severe coronary heart disease, and who cannot be treated using coronary stent intervention. In the current study, one case of coronary artery bypass grafting combined with liver transplantation was assessed, with the patient exhibiting advanced alcoholic liver cirrhosis. A coronary artery bypass graft was performed to relieve angina pectoris. Following surgery, wound exudation, secondary infection, liver failure, pleuroperitoneal fluid leakage, hypoproteinemia and other adverse treatment results occurred, and the chest wound did not heal. Allograft liver transplantation was subsequently performed and, following surgery, the chest wound healed gradually after debridement, and the patient recovered.
