We present the case of a Cabrol-type proximal anastomosis technique in off-pump coronary artery bypass. The patient was a 64-year-old man with significant stenoses on the left main, left anterior descending, and proximal right coronary artery. The obtuse marginal and right coronary arteries were anastomosed with both ends of a radial artery. For the proximal anastomosis during this procedure, we applied the Cabrol-type looping interposition technique. In selected patients, we suggest that this technique allows the effective use of graft length and can reduce a number of ascending aortic manipulations.
