Introduction We present a rare case in which both a double cardiac valve replacement was performed as well as a hepatic resection. PRESENTATION OF CASE We report the case of a 36 year old patient who presented with intra abdominal bleeding thought to have been caused by a liver haemangioma she also had severe autoimmune cardiac valve disease. She underwent a simultaneous right hepatectomy with cardiac valve replacement. DISCUSSION Management of this challenging case is discussed. CONCLUSION We advocate the possibility of performing combined operations where both valve replacement and hepatic resection is required. © 2014 The Authors.
