Abstract

Many patients who require lung resection have cardiovascular and cerebrovascular comorbidities. It has been recommended that surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) should precede lung resection in patients with severe aortic valve stenosis (AS). However, by first undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI), the patient may undergo lung resection more safely. We present two patients with both severe AS and lung cancer who underwent TAVI and lung resection without any complications.
