Tóm tắt

Cardiac involvement is an often fatal and underestimated complication in systemic sclerosis, but only few reports have been published on the surgical intervention of patients with cardiothoracic complication in patient with systemic sclerosis. We hereby present a case of severe mitral valve regurgitation due to infective endocarditis on patient with systemic sclerosis. The patient underwent mitral valve reconstruction and post-operative management of systemic sclerosis.
