The use of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) as an acute treatment in severe decompensated bioprosthetic aortic valve disease is not well documented. We describe herein a unique case in which valve-in-valve (ViV) TAVR was successfully used as both an emergency salvage therapy and a bridge to definitive fourth reoperative aortic valve replacement (AVR) in a young patient with cardiogenic shock secondary to bioprosthetic aortic valve stenosis who was dependent on veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO). © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
