We report an implantation of a novel bovine pericardial bioprosthesis in the mitral position. An 80-year-old woman underwent double valve replacement with the novel bioprosthesis, the MITRIS RESILIA mitral valve, in the mitral position and the INSPIRIS RESILIA aortic valve in the aortic position. The MITRIS valve is attached to the RESILIA tissue, which is treated using a special integrity preservation technology, which possibly increases its durability. The structural features of this bioprosthesis could facilitate easier and safer implantability during double valve replacement. This bioprosthesis can be considered advantageous theoretically in patients undergoing double valve replacement.
