Abstract

Transcatheter valve implantation is a novel interventional technique, which was developed as an  alternative therapy for surgical aortic valve replacement in inoperable patients with severe aortic stenosis. Despite limited experience in using transcatheter valve implantation for mitral and aortic regurgitation, transapical transcatheter aortic valve implantation and valve-in-valve implantation for degenerated mitral valve bioprosthesis can be performed in high-risk patients who are not candidates for conventional replacement surgery. In this case, we present the simultaneous transcatheter valve implantation via transapical approach for both degenerated bioprosthetic mitral valve with severe regurgitation and pure severe aortic regurgitation.
