      lotus valve-in-valve implantation in a degenerated surgical bioprosthesis.

AB  - Bioprosthesis degeneration is a relevant clinical issue that is increasingly
      developing with the higher expectancy of life. Its treatment may be further
      complicated by the presence of paravalvular leaks, which are usually consequence 
      of tissue friability, annular calcification, and infection. The surgical
      treatment of such complex conditions may be too risky, so percutaneous techniques
      in selected centers are becoming an attracting option. We report the case of a
      65-year-old gentleman with a previous aortic valve replacement (Perimount n.25)
      who was admitted with worsening heart failure and transoesophageal evidence of
      severe intraprosthetic regurgitation and a large paravalvular leak. Since he was 
      judged at too high risk for surgery, he was treated by a fully percutaneous
      approach. First, he had his large paravalvular leak closed by implantation of two
      plugs from both retrograde and anterograde routes (arterial-venous loop created).
      After one month, he underwent a "valve-in-valve" transcatheter aortic valve
      implantation with a fully repositionable Lotus 23 mm valve, which was able to
      restore a completely normal aortic valve function and let to a dramatic
      improvement of his functional status at 6-month follow-up (from NYHA IV to NYHA
      I), when a transthoracic echocardiogram also confirmed the absence of any aortic 
      regurgitation. This case shows how a tailored step-by-step fully percutaneous
      strategy is safe and feasible in high-risk patients with both bioprosthesis
      degeneration and large paravalvular leaks. This novel opportunity would need to
      be better evaluated in properly addressed long-term clinical studies. (c) 2016
