Dextrocardia is a rare cardiac anomaly in which the heart is located in the right chest along with the cardiac long axis directing to the right and inferiorly. Although, it is a rare clinical phenomenon, coronary artery disease with dextrocardia is presumed to be of similar frequency as in the general population. Percutaneous coronary intervention has some technical difficulties in these patients. We hereby report a male patient with dextrocardia who was previously treated with coronary artery bypass graft surgery.
