We present a case report of a robotic-assisted mitral valve repair with simultaneous percutaneous coronary intervention. A 58-year-old man presented with New York Heart Association class III symptoms from severe mitral regurgitation and significant stenosis of the right coronary artery. In a hybrid operating theater, the patient underwent placement of a bare metal stent in the right coronary artery followed immediately by robotic-assisted mitral valve repair. Both procedures were successful and occurred in a timely fashion. The patient experienced no immediate postoperative complications and was discharged home on postoperative day 5. At 2-week follow-up, he had returned to his normal activities of daily living and at 1 year remained asymptomatic. This case report demonstrates the benefits of minimally invasive robotic mitral valve repair in allowing for successful repair, early postoperative return to activity, minimal incision pain, and high patient satisfaction. It further highlights the potential benefit of a hybrid operating theater in allowing surgical and percutaneous coronary intervention procedures to be delivered in a safe and efficient manner.
