A 36-year-old pregnant woman with a history of rheumatic heart disease and prior aortic valve replacement and mitral valve repair presented to an outside hospital with severe aortic stenosis. The patient had a cardiac arrest upon labor induction and underwent a transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), which dislodged two days later. Five months later, the patient underwent removal of the dislodged TAVR and a Ross procedure at the authors’ institution. The patient was stable upon discharge, with

 

minimal aortic and pulmonary regurgitation. To the authors’ knowledge, the present report is the first of the Ross procedure being used under such circumstances. It is suggested that caution be taken when using bioprosthetic and transcatheter aortic valves in young patients, and primary use of the Ross procedure is encouraged at experienced centers.
