Abstract

Intraprosthetic regurgitation (IR) is a rare but devastating complication of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). We describe the successful treatment of moderate intraprosthetic regurgitation in a 89 year old woman, who had been treated for severe aortic stenosis using a 23mm SAPIEN-3 valve.
