Abstract

A 61-year-old woman who has undergone coronary artery bypass grafting 30 years ago, now reveals severe mitral regurgitation. Coronary angiography and computed tomography show patency of the graft. To avoid injuring the graft, mitral valve replacement under ventricular fibrillation without aortic cross clamping was performed through a right minithoracotomy approach.
