The authors describe the case of a 72-year-old patient who has a history of rheumatic heart disease and had mitral valve replacement in childhood. She presents with progressive right-sided heart failure unresponsive to medical therapy. On evaluation she was found to have severe aortic stenosis and severe tricuspid stenosis. Surgical correction of both valves resulted in complete resolution of heart failure with remarkable improvement in quality of life. The symptoms, physical findings, and treatment options will be discussed.
