Up to 66% of giant pulmonary artery aneurysms are associated with severe pulmonary hypertension. For these patients, lung or heart-lung en bloc transplantation is the only definitive therapy available. To date, there have been only two reports of concomitant double lung transplant and resection of a giant pulmonary artery aneurysm. We report a case of combined mitral and pulmonary valve repair, resection of a giant pulmonary artery aneurysm, and double lung transplant in a patient with primary pulmonary hypertension.
