Combined cardiac surgery and liver transplantation

Academic Article

Abstract

  • During evaluation for liver transplantation, a 63-year-old man with cirrhosis secondary to hepatitis C was diagnosed with severe aortic stenosis (aortic valve area, 0.87 cm2) and coronary artery disease. A combined procedure involving aortic valve replacement (pericardial xenograft), coronary artery bypass surgery, and orthotopic liver transplantation was performed. Convalescence was uneventful, and at 2 years after the procedure, the patient has normal cardiac function, good prosthetic valve function, and biochemically normal liver function.
