We report the case of a 75-year-old patient diagnosed with severe aortic stenosis and two-vessel coronary artery disease. Due to multiple comorbidities including chronic renal insufficiency, stroke and pulmonary hypertension (EuroSCORE: 34 %; STS mortality risk: 14.9 %), he was not a candidate for conventional aortic valve surgery. He underwent a novel hybrid treatment approach combining off-pump CABG and transapical aortic valve implantation via a median sternotomy. Extracorporeal circulation could be entirely avoided.
