Abstract

Complex aortic valve repair after mass lesion resection, in an otherwise normal, thin leafleted valve, is rarely described in the literature. We present a 68-year-old woman who underwent resection of an asymptomatic aortic valve papillary fibroelastoma. Due to extensive involvement of her left coronary cusp, the resection resulted in a significant defect in the leaflet, requiring a complex repair to preserve her otherwise normal aortic valve. We describe the operative findings, repair technique, and associated literature.
