A 60-year-old man with a history of a prior double-valve replacement (DVR) and permanent pacemaker implantation underwent mitral valve reoperation due to a paravalvular leak. Reoperation was performed on a beating heart (BH) on cardiopulmonary bypass, by perfusing the heart continuously with oxygenated noncardioplegic normothermic blood via the coronary sinus. We report the case of a patient who underwent mitral valve reoperation on a beating heart, 10 years after his first double-valve replacement and permanent pacemaker implantation.
