The authors report the case of a 4 month old North African baby with massive congenital mitral insufficiency associated with a coarctation of the aorta. The surgical treatment consisted in correction of the coarctation followed, several days later, by a Ross mitral procedure after failure of mitral reconstructive surgery. The postoperative course required circulatory assistance for 4 days and the child returned to his family two months after surgery. Control echocardiography before hospital discharge showed good function of the pulmonary autograft in the mitral position with no regurgitation but slight stenosis with a mean transvalvular pressure gradient of 4 mmHg. This procedure may be used in certain cases as an alternative to mitral valve replacement.
