Abstract

Bioprosthetic valve thrombosis (BPVT) is more common than previously thought and likely underreported. BPVT can be accurately diagnosed with cardiac imaging and treated successfully with anticoagulation, thus preventing re-operation. We hereby report a case of recurrent BPVT in the mitral position successfully treated with anticoagulation along with review of literature.
