The association of pectus excavatum and cardiac anomalies in patients with Marfan syndrome is not exceptional. The surgical treatment is always challenging. The first case performed in the UAE of a complex surgery in a one-stage procedure with simultaneous complex cardiac valve repair(valve-sparing aortic root replacement associated with mitral valve repair) and pectus deformity correction is reported. An update of the surgical strategy is proposed.
