78 year old gentleman with severe Aortic Stenosis and normal LV systolic function. Given his age and frailty, he was deemed to high risk by the surgeons for aortic valve replacement. Work up including TEE, CT and coronary angiogram revealed that he is a good candidate for TAVI via femoral access. The procedure was performed successfully using an Edwards Sapien Valve through the transfemoral approach. No complications occurred. Post procedure TEE (3D) confirmed excellent valve position and function.
