Abstract

This case report describes a frail, middle-aged woman with multiple comorbidities who was scheduled to undergo extraction of all remaining teeth in anticipation of cardiac quadruple valve intervention. Dental and anesthetic management of the patient are discussed. Medical care of the patient with a high burden of comorbidities requires a multidisciplinary approach even for a routine dental procedure.
