Critical donor shortages have impulsed the need to expand donor heart eligibility through the use of marginal hearts in cardiac transplantation. Donor valvular disease has been considered as an absolute contraindication for transplant. A 39-year-old male patient with end-stage non-compaction cardiomyopathy, an INTERMACS II heart failure, and a left ventricular ejection fraction of 8% was taken to an orthotopic heart transplantation. During donor bench graft examination, a congenital bicuspid and calcified aortic valve was found. The native bicuspid valve was removed and the annular calcification debrided; een #21 bioprosthetic aortic valve was then implanted.
