A 33-year-old woman with congenital bicuspid aortic stenosis had a complex surgical history, which included aortic valve replacement with a 21-mm Freestyle bioprosthesis (Medtronic, Dublin, Ireland) (2005), placement of a 22-mm Hancock valved apicoaortic conduit (Medtronic) (2006), and subsequent revision of the conduit with valve replacement (2009). An apicoaortic conduit relieves left ventricular (LV) outlet obstruction by shunting blood from the LV to the descending aorta via a valved conduit.
