An 84-year-old woman with severe aortic stenosis(AS)and coronary artery disease(CAD)was admitted repeatedly with syncope and heart failure. Due to her comorbidities, concomitant transapical transcatheter aortic valve replacement(TAVR)and off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting(OPCAB)were performed. She did well postoperatively. CAD is often found concurrently in patients presenting with severe symptomatic AS. Concomitant TAVR and OPCAB is considered as a less invasive and more feasible treatment option in high-risk patients.
