The double valve replacement surgery involves replacing valves that do not function properly or that have been damaged. The surgery is generally reserved for patients whose valves cannot undergo other types of repair. The double valve replacement surgery is performed under general anesthesia, and entails replacing both the aortic and the mitral valve with mechanical or biological replacements. The surgery also requires a heart-lung bypass machine.
