Abstract

Radiotherapy is used widely in cancer treatment. Mediastinal irradiation is associated with valvular regurgitation; however, stenosis is rare. We present a patient with critical aortic and mitral valve stenosis after mediastinal irradiation and discuss the natural history, treatment, and prognosis of radiation-associated valvular heart disease.
