A 31-year-old woman who had undergone aortic and mitral valve replacement 1 year previously was hospitalized with suspected prosthetic valve endocarditis. Freestyle stentless aortic xenograft was successfully replaced using freestanding total aortic root replacement techniques at the left ventricular outflow tract position, and aorta-to-right coronary artery bypass was also applied with a saphenous vein graft. The patient developed multiple systemic problems during the preoperative and postoperative periods and was successfully treated with intensive interventions. She was discharged at the postoperative fourth month, and the following 28 months were uneventful.
