A 56-year-old man admitted with dyspnea had undergone aortic valve replacement using a Starr-Edwards ball valve to treat aortic regurgitation 28 years earlier. Chest radiography showed moderate cardiomegaly, moderate pulmonary edema, and mild pleural effusion. Echocardiographic examination showed severe mitral regurgitation. The mitral valve was replaced using a St. Jude Medical prosthesis, and the Starr-Edwards aortic valve was replaced using a CarboMedics prosthetic valve. The cloth covering on the Starr-Edwards valve had worn away and pannus had formed. The patient's postoperative course was uneventful, and he was discharged on postoperative day 35.
