Acute presentation of critical peripheral arterial ischemia in an unstable cardiac patient is a challenge to the surgeon. Coexistence of two entities is usually managed with a staged approach; however, decision to treat which entity first may be difficult clinically. We present a 49-year-old man with acute infrarenal aortic occlusion and cardiac ischemia who was treated with single-stage ascending aorta-bifemoral bypass following saphenous vein grafting to left anterior descending artery. Concomitant coronary and peripheral vascular revascularization is a practical method with a high flow inflow source as ascending aorta. We believe that a single-stage approach may be performed in the unstable patient as presented in this report.
