Valvular heart disease (predominantly aortic and mitral valve disease) has been well documented in patients with osteogenesis imperfecta. Twenty-two prior reports of valve replacement and/or repair have been published. Mortality from cardiac surgery in these patients has been high, particularly in those receiving double valve prostheses. Here, a patient is described with advanced cardiovascular disease who underwent successful aortic and mitral valve replacement. This represents the second reported survival of double valve replacement in osteogenesis imperfecta and a reduced mortality rate for this procedure.
