Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) technique has an extended application for its use in replacing degenerated bioprosthetic valves implanted by open-heart surgery in the past. This procedure is especially useful for those patients who are at high risk for a redo surgery. This is called valve-in-valve-TAVR and is likely to be a standard of care for patients with bioprosthetic valve failure. This report describes valve-in-valve replacement of two such cases performed in our institute, which were at a high risk for a redo valve surgery.
