We report a case of malignant pleural mesothelioma treated with trimodality treatment. At three years after the extrapleural pneumonectomy, coronary artery revascularisation surgery for NSTEMI was performed in view of favourable long term prognostic and survival outcome. Five years following pleuropneumonectomy there is no clinical or radiological evidence of mesothelioma and the patient remains free of cardiac symptoms.
