Abstract

We report the case of a 83-year-old man who had undergone a full root replacement with a stentless bioprosthesis 15 years earlier. He was now diagnosed with severe aortic valve regurgitation secondary to leaflet degeneration, moderate mitral regurgitation, and single-vessel coronary artery disease. To reduce cross-clamp time and technical difficulties a sutureless aortic prosthesis was used. His surgery and postoperative course were uneventful. This is the first report of the successful use of a sutureless aortic valve prosthesis in a patient after bioprosthetic full root replacement who required additional mitral repair and coronary artery bypass surgery.
