Abstract

Aortic stenosis (AS) is the most commonly encountered valvular disease in developed countries. Once symptomatic, this disease carries a dismal prognosis. Patients unfit for surgical valve replacement may require transcatheter aortic valve implantations (TAVI). We present a complication of this novel approach where a prosthetic valve is delivered through the femoral artery by means of a Retroflex delivery system developed by Edwards Lifesciences.
