Patients who have undergone laryngectomy pose a challenge when they require coronary artery bypass grafting. The location of the tracheal stoma just above the jugular notch may interfere with the sternotomy, increase the risk of infection, and add some difficulty to the operative procedure. We describe the surgical technique used in 2 such patients.
