The literature concerning heart surgery after pneumonectomy is still poor. Moreover, there is still a lack of a standardized approach to such a patient in the decision-making process. Here, we report a case of a patient who had previously had left pneumonectomy for malignancy and who had coronary artery disease and mitral and tricuspid regurgitation treated with a hybrid procedure. © 2014 The Author 2014.

Myxomatous degeneration generally involves the atrioventricular valves (mitral and tricuspid). Rarely, it may affect the aortic or pulmonary valve. We report a case of an acute severe aortic insufficiency due to a rupture of a commissure of the aortic valve in a patient who had previously undergone mitral valve surgery for myxomatous mitral valve prolapse. doi: 10.1111/jocs.12276 (J Card Surg 2014;29:497-498) © 2014 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
