Objectives: This study evaluates the safety and feasibility of a staged minimally invasive aortic valve replacement (MIAVR) followed by percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) in patient with combined aortic valve and coronary artery disease. Methods: 28 patients with concomitant aortic valve and coronary artery disease who underwent MIAVR followed by planned PCI between April 2011 and April 2018 were retrospectively analyzed. Results: The majority of patients (53%) were male. The mean age was 75.1 10 years. Valvular pathology was aortic stenosis in 25 patients and aortic insufficiency in 3 patients. All patients underwent a right anterior mini thoracotomy AVR. No 30 day mortality was observed, 1 patient required re-exploration for bleeding. The mean time between MIAVR and PCI was 16.515.9 days. PCI was performed for single vessel disease in 26 patients (93%) and for two vessel disease in 2 patients (7%). Most common treated vessel was the mid left anterior descending artery (46%), followed by right coronary artery (31%) and circumflex artery (23%). At a mean follow up of 45.422 months 3 patients required a repeat PCI, 1 patient died from intra cranial hemorrhage and 4 patients were lost to follow up. Conclusions: In a subset of patient with concomitant aortic valve and coronary artery disease, a staged hybrid approach with MIAVR followed by PCI is safe and might represent a feasible alternative to a more invasive procedure.
