Abstract: We present a case of 68-year-old female with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis and locally advanced breast cancer disqualified from mastectomy due to heart failure and from aortic valve replacement due to malignant neoplasm. The patient received neoadjuvant chemotherapy without anthracyclines. The aortic valve replacement was performed and then mastectomy and lymphadenectomy were made without hemodynamic complications. Adjuvant hormonotherapy was started. During 42 months of follow-up the patient remained free of recurrent cancer disease as well as no progression of heart failure was observed.
Key words: aortic stenosis, breast cancer, anthracyclines, aortic valve replacement, echocardiography
