A 29-year-old male with a known history of Marfan syndrome was referred to the authors’ institute for surgical assessment. Physical examination showed a severe symmetric pectus excavatum, with a Haller Index of 7.8. Preoperative workup included a transesophageal echocardiography that revealed severe mitral valve regurgitation due to bileaflet mitral valve prolapse and a 5 cm aortic root dilatation involving the sinuses of Valsalva.
