Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT; Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome) is an uncommon disease characterized by abnormal telangiectasias and arteriovenous malformations that cause recurrent bleeding. Here, we present the case of a patient with HHT, who had a history of pulmonary and hepatic arteriovenous malformations and endocarditis of a prosthetic aortic valve that was caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. The patient underwent the Bentall operation after coil embolization for pulmonary arteriovenous malformations. The postoperative course was uneventful.
