A 71-year-old woman with severe congestive heart failure and failed mitral valve repair was referred for surgery. Because of her low ejection fraction, a valve-in-ring procedure was suggested. There was a great difference in the given size for the 34-mm Carpentier-Edwards-Physio-Ring and the biggest available transcatheter valve of 29 mm from Edwards. Therefore, we did a "bench test." We expanded a 29-mm Edwards SAPIEN-XT aortic valve in a 34-mm Carpentier-Edwards-Physio-Ring. It fitted well and turned out circular with good coaptation of the leaflets. Thereafter, a successful transapical mitral valve-in-ring implantation on cardiopulmonary bypass was performed, and additional leads for cardiac resynchronization was placed.
