Abstract

The indications for transcatheter aortic valve implantation have been increasing with the development of new-generation valves and delivery systems. Our patient, an 81-year-old man with aortic stenosis, had an existing coronary artery bypass graft and bilateral aortoiliac bypass grafts. We used the transfemoral approach through the left femoral artery and the left aortoiliac graft to successfully deploy a new-generation Edwards SAPIEN valve.
