Abstract

We report a successful follow-up after 28 years of a woman with obliterative restrictive endomyocardial fibrosis (EMF) that underwent complete surgical decortication with simultaneous mitral and tricuspid bioprosthetic valve replacement in 1982 and underwent successful reoperation for the structural failure of biological prostheses after 25 years.
