A 46-year-old man with 6-years history of hemodialysis because of chronic renal failure underwent the mitral and aortic valve replacement along with maze procedure. His mitral annulus was heavily calcified and the usual decalcification was impossible. We left the thick calcium bar in annulus and sewed the prosthesis to the atrium intima and muscle which were thought to have adequate supporting force. This experience prompted us to report this case.
