Reparación transaórtica de un aneurisma del velo anterior mitral como complicación de una endocarditis bacteriana
Mitral valve aneurysms are very rare complications of bacterial endocarditis. We present the case of an 88-year-old woman with moderate aortic insufficiency and an aneurysm in the anterior leaflet of the mitral valve secondary to endocarditis. After completing a full course of antibiotic, we performed though the aortotomy, mitral leaflet aneurysm resection, repairing the defect with an autologous pericardial patch, and aortic valve replacement by a bioprosthesis. The evolution of the patient was uneventful and was discharged on the ninth postoperative day. (C) 2018 Sociedad Espanola de Cirugia Toracica-Cardiovascular. Published by Elsevier Espana, S.L.U.
