Dextrocardia associated with situs inversus totalis is a rare condition. A small number of patients with the condition have been reported after undergoing myocardial revascularization. We experienced a case of this rare disorder in an 83-year-old man. He was successfully treated by off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting with bilateral internal thoracic arteries and a saphenous vein. Except for the mirror-image anatomy, the surgical technique was similar to that used for a patient with situs solitus.
