Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) has evolved as a strategy for managing aortic stenosis in a growing proportion of patients considered at high or intermediate surgical risk. Though early data has demonstrated excellent durability and life span of transcatheter valves up to five years, there is an absence of case based studies in the literature regarding transcatheter valve failure after TAVR, and outcomes of subsequent redo TAVR Valve-in-Valve (VIV) procedures. We report here a successful case of emergent, catheter-based treatment for severe, highly symptomatic valve in valve restenosis of a 5 year old Sapien valve.
