|The case is reported of a symptomatic elderly patient with severe mitral regurgitation, severe aortic valve stenosis, and coronary heart disease. The coronary artery disease had been interventionally treated four years previously with stent implantation into the right coronary artery. Published studies have shown that a combination of mitral and aortic valve surgery is associated with a significantly||increased risk of mortality and morbidity, particularly in elderly patients. In the present patient, both valvular malformations were successfully treated with a single-step interdisciplinary approach, namely an initial surgical mitral valve replacement followed by transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve replacement.
