Abstract

We report the case of a 39-year-old man who underwent life-saving aortic valve replacement with a bioprosthesis for acute endocarditis while on the liver transplant waiting list, followed by successful transplantation and late valve re-replacement with a mechanical prosthesis, 10.8 years after primary valve surgery.
