Transcatheter aortic valve implantation has been shown to be an effective treatment for severe aortic stenosis in high-risk surgical patients. Many of these patients have significant coexisting coronary artery disease. We report the first case of combined off-pump transapical aortic valve implantation and minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass via a left mini-thoracotomy in an 82-year-old man with significant comorbidities. This combined procedure is technically feasible and can be performed safely in selected patients with aortic stenosis and left anterior descending artery lesion that is not suitable for percutaneous intervention.
