Abstract

We describe the treatment of a 16-year-old girl with calcific aortic stenosis, porcelain aorta, and calcific mitral stenosis with insufficiency using a valved apicoaortic conduit and mitral valve prosthesis. Both valve replacements were porcine bioprostheses, and the apicoaortic conduit was implanted without the use of cardiopulmonary bypass. In cases in which the degree of aortic calcification pre-empts manipulation of the coronary ostia, an apicoaortic conduit may offer a viable solution to improve left ventricular outflow obstruction.
