Transcatheter aortic valve replacement has emerged as an alternative to surgical aortic valve replacement for high-risk and inoperable patients. Although transcatheter aortic valve replacement avoids the use of extracorporeal circulation and sternotomy, it is nonetheless associated with inherent complications. We aim to present an embolized valve-in-valve complex in the ascending aorta, which required emergency surgery with deep hypothermic circulatory arrest and proximal aortic cannulation.
