A 67-year-old woman with a history of esophagectomy with substernal gastric tube (GT) reconstruction and left lower lobectomy required aortic valve replacement (AVR) for aortic valve regurgitation and stenosis. Through a median sternotomy (MS) with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), we performed AVR without injury to the GT. Careful peeling of the GT and detailed information of the operative field by multidetector-row computed tomography (MDCT) scan enabled us to carry out the operation safely in the usual operative view.
