Dextrocardia associated with situs inversus totalis is a rare congenital condition. A small number of cases with these conditions have been reported who underwent myocardial revascularization via the on-pump or off-pump techniques. Among them, only 1 patient with dextrocardia and situs inversus totalis was reported to have the procedure performed with minimally invasive coronary surgery via a right anterior small thoracotomy. However, the case was a single-vessel disease and only one graft was achieved. We describe the case of a 65-year old female patient with triple-vessel obstructive coronary diseases who was successfully revascularized with three grafts using a minimally invasive technique. This was achieved via partial sternotomy and employing off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting.
