Abstract

Our patient is 74-year-old man with a history of hypertension, hyperlipidemia, prior stroke, paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (on anticoagulation) who had a prior bioprosthetic mitral valve replacement (#33 St. Jude Medical Epic), tricuspid valve repair (#34 Contour Ring) who was doing well until 2 months prior to presentation when he noted increasing shortness of breath with exertion, lower extremity edema and weight gain. His symptoms progressed despite diuresis.
