Structural deterioration is a major and inevitable complication of bioprosthetic heart valves. So far, a repeat surgery has been the only practical treatment option available for patients with hemodynamically significant bioprosthetic valve dysfunction. However, the exceedingly successful emergence of transcatheter aortic valve replacement therapy for native aortic valve disease has paved way for its extension to failed bioprosthetic valves also. Initially adopted for aortic bioprosthesis, this technique has now been successfully used for failed mitral bioprosthetic valves as well. This review summarizes the technical aspects and current evidence related to transcatheter mitral valve-in-valve procedures for failed mitral bioprosthetic valves.
