A case of a 58-year-old Jehovah’s Witness with two-vessel disease is presented, including a calcified ostial left anterior descending artery (LAD) lesion and a focal right coronary artery lesion. Hybrid revascularization, including robotic coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with left internal mammary artery (LIMA) to LAD followed by a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) on the right coronary lesion with a drug eluting stent (DES), was performed.

Aortic valve sparing-aortic root replacement with the reimplantation technique in the context of acute type A aortic dissection can be carried out without increased perioperative risk and is associated with excellent long-term results in terms of recurrence of aortic regurgitation and reoperation on the valve or the aortic root.

Minimally invasive mitral valve repair with the Memo3D ReChord is a simple and reproducible technique, suitable for both anterior and posterior leaflet prolapse, which restores leaflet motion and ensures a large surface of coaptation. The temporary chordal guide system allows a correct implantation of PTFE neochordae without the need for chordal measurement, short operative times and doesn't require a long learning process.
