The authors report a case of a 44-year-old pregnant woman with Marfan syndrome who was diagnosed with type A aortic dissection at 25 weeks of pregnancy. She underwent a mechanical Bentall procedure with cardiopulmonary bypass and circulatory arrest. Postoperatively, the fetus was not distressed; echocardiogram and magnetic resonance imaging were repeated, and a prophylactic cesarean section was performed at 36 weeks. Both the mother and the baby were followed up for 1 year and presented no clinical issue.
