Background: The concomitant occurrence of lung cancer or other thoracic problems requiring surgical treatment in patients with significant coronary artery disease is uncommon.

Methods: Three patients underwent revascularization of the anterior descending artery, without cardiopulmonary bypass, with simultaneous pulmonary lobectomy (two patients) or replacement of an obstructed descending aortic graft (one patient).

Results: Postoperative ventilation time was < 3 h, and no morbidity related to the combined procedure occurred during midterm follow-up.

Conclusions: This one-stage approach allowed the immediate solution of two intrathoracic comorbidities, reducing expenses and suffering to the patients and minimizing the risk of bleeding or tumor dissemination secondary to extracorporeal circulation-induced coagulopathy and immunosuppression.
