A 58-year-old female patient who was scheduled for liver transplantation due to cryptogenic cirrhosis was diagnosed with severe aortic stenosis. She underwent a combined procedure of bioprosthetic aortic valve replacement and living donor liver transplantation, which was performed for the first time in Turkey. Postoperative course was uneventful and both bioprosthetic aortic valve and liver graft functions were normal at six months postoperatively.
