Aortic valve replacement in patients with a patent internal mammary artery grafts poses two main challenges: Sternal reentry and myocardial protection. Beating heart procedures have been well described in coronary and valve surgery. Herein, we describe a simple reproducible technique of aortic valve replacement that circumvents the main issues highlighted above.
