Abstract

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has emerged as a viable alternative endovascular technique in selected patients with severe aortic stenosis, who are either inoperable or at high risk for surgical aortic valve replacement. We report a case of delayed displacement and rotation of an aortic bioprosthesis, 43 days after successful TAVI via the transfemoral approach, with the patient surviving the subsequent open heart surgery required for device retrieval.
