Concurrent stenosis of the coronary and carotid circulation is one of the most serious disease. The authors describe the case of a 74-year old female patient with ischaemic heart disease with concurrent bilateral occlusion of the common carotid arteries. Surgical revascularization of the myocardium was made using extracorporeal circulation under general normothermia with protection of the heart muscle from ischaemia by the method of warm blood cardioplegia. In the discussion the authors analyze contemporary possibilities of surgical treatment of ischaemic disease (MIDCAB, OPCAB, operations with extracorporeal circulation) and emphasize the advantages and risks of different procedures.
