TAVI is a relatively new interventional procedure designed for management of aortic stenosis in patients with high surgical risk. Performing it on someone with a prosthetic mitral valve is a challenge, made much easier by the new delivery systems and valves. We present one such procedure and try to put some light on the difficulties that await along the way to successful implantation.

Keywords: Transcatheter aortic-valve implantation (TAVI), aortic artery stenosis, prosthetic mitral valve,
