A 37-year-old man with symptoms of cardiovascular disease applied to our hospital. Seven years ago, he had undergone combined kidney and pancreas transplantation. Afterwards, 4 years ago, his renal transplantation was repeated because of rejection. Coronary artery angiography revealed two-vessel coronary artery stenosis. We performed coronary artery bypass grafting to treat the coronary artery disease. The post-operative period was uneventful, and he was discharged from the hospital without any complications. Coronary artery diseases in recipients of combined kidney and pancreas transplantation can be safely treated using coronary artery bypass grafting.
