Abstract

Surgical treatment is effective to exclude all infected tissue in patients with infective endocarditis. Although various techniques have been reported, it has remained a great challenge for patients with extensive infected regions. A patient with extensive bivalvular endocarditis including the aortic and mitral valve and aorto-mitral continuity is described. A handmade aorto-mitral bioprosthetic valve was created to reconstruct the defect after extensive debridement. The patient was discharged on the 30th postoperative day without inflammatory signs.
