Abstract

We report two cases of high-risk aortic stenosis treated with the SAPIEN 3 valve. This is the first procedure performed with this type of valve through the transapical approach. This new balloon-expandable valve incorporates a lower profile cobalt-chromium stent and an additional outer skirt to enhance paravalvular sealing. The procedure was performed without complications and no paravalvular leak was detected in control echocardiogram at follow-up.
