In recent years, the interest of surgeons to simultaneous operations is growing, as they relieve the patient from several diseases, eliminate the risk of repeated interventions, increase the economic efficiency of treatment. However, there are categories of patients when it is advisable to divide the treatment into several surgical stages. As a successful example of this approach, the article presents the clinical observation of the patient’s treatment of combined pathology – generalized myasthenia gravis, coronary heart disease and gastric cancer.
