Abstract

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is rapidly evolving as an alternative treatment option for elderly patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis and excessive risk for surgical intervention. Transcatheter valve-in-valve implantation is an alternative approach to redo-surgery for patients with degeneration of a bioprosthetic valve. Herein are reported three cases of successful transcatheter aortic valve-in-valve implantation for severely regurgitant bioprosthetic valves with a clinical follow up of more than 12 months.
