Transcatheter transapical or transfemoral aortic valve replacement has emerged as an alternative therapy of severe, symptomatic valvular aortic stenosis in surgically nonamenable patients. We report a transapical treatment of a severely stenosed 21-mm aortic Mitroflow valve bioprosthesis (Sorin Group, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada) in an 82-year-old woman using a 23-mm Edwards SAPIEN Transcatheter Heart Valve (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, CA).
