The operative risk for reoperation of degenerated bioprosthetic valves or failing mitral-valve annuloplasty is higher compared with the risks for first isolated native valve repair or replacement (Astor et al., Eur Heart J 2008;29:2382-2387). In the presence of comorbidities, these risks increase exponentially. The recent introduction of transcatheter valve implantation opened new perspectives for the treatment of patients at very high surgical risk.

Antegrade percutaneous valve implantation for mitral ring dysfunction, a challenging case.

Abstract

The operative risk for reoperation of degenerated bioprosthetic valves or failing mitral-valve annuloplasty is higher compared with the risks for first isolated native valve repair or replacement (Astor et al., Eur Heart J 2008;29:2382-2387). In the presence of comorbidities, these risks increase exponentially. The recent introduction of transcatheter valve implantation opened new perspectives for the treatment of patients at very high surgical risk. We report a percutaneous mitral valve (MV) implantation using a transatrial approach within a MV ring using the Edwars Sapien XT valve.
