CoreValve repositioning complicated by entrapment of snare in the valve delivery anchor

We report on the treatment of a patient, with severe peri-prosthetic regurgitation, following CoreValve implantation too low into the left ventricle outflow tract, adjusted by ‘snaring’ prosthesis. This bail-out manoeuvre allows the appropriate positioning of the prosthesis but was complicated by the entrapment of the goose-neck loop in the valve delivery anchor and was solved successfully with a second different device.
