A 57-year-old man with mitral and aortic valve stenosis was admitted to our hospital. An electrocardiogram showed atrial fibrillation. After receiving informed consent, we performed a double valve replacement (DVR) with bioprostheses and maze procedure, utilizing a port-access technique. The operation and aortic cross-clamping times were 460 and 228 min, respectively. The patient's recovery was uneventful and he was discharged from our hospital with a consistent sinus rhythm 22 days after surgery. This is the first case report of port-access DVR in Japan.
