A 48 year old gentleman presented with shortness of breath on exertion underwent transthoracic echocardiogram and was found to have severe aortic regurgitation. He was referred for elective aortic valve replacement. Surgical options were discussed with the patient to obtain an informed consent. Although the patient became aware of the long term and durability of mechanical valve, however he was not keen on warfarin and the option of aortic valve repair was explored and agreed on. Aortic valve repair in such patients can provide good postoperative clinical results although the superior status of the repair as a surgical technique for aortic regurgitation has not been yet clearly demonstrated.
