ABSTRACT
We report a rare case of combined valvular disease concomitant with the communication between the coronary and bronchial arteries. A 76-year-old woman was given a diagnosis of chronic heart failure 8 years previously and received medical therapy but recently she had dyspnea. Ultrasound cardiography revealed aortic regurgitation and mitral regurgitation. Cardiac catheterization confirmed the combined valvular disease and also revealed an aberrant coronary artery. Cardiac computed tomography showed coronary to bronchial artery communication, which caused myocardial ischemia. We performed aortic valve replacement with a bioprosthesis, mitral valve repair, and ligation and division of the aberrant coronary artery. Apart from some postoperative bronchial bleeding that ceased spontaneously the postoperative course was uneventful.
