We present a case of successful percutaneous aortic balloon valvuloplasty performed via surgical cut down of the right brachial artery in a patient with distal aortic occlusion. We describe the procedural technique and review the literature on alternative access sites that have been used to perform percutaneous aortic balloon valvuloplasty.
