Mitral annular calcification is a major surgical challenge in patients requiring mitral procedures due to the risk of atrioventricular dehiscence. We describe a detailed technique of open mitral valve replacement using an annuloplasty ring to serve as landing zone for transatrial delivery of a balloon-expandable transcatheter valve. In this video we describe the steps of the procedure and provide trick to avoid paravelvular regurgitation and obstruction of the left ventricular outflow tract.
