Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The role of percutaneous technology for aortic valve replacement therapy has been well established in the literature. However, transcatheter therapies for mitral valve disease are still in a very early phase. Successful transcatheter valve implantation in mitral valves with calcified annulae via different access sites has been reported. Most of the procedures that have been done are not well described or illustrated. We describe here the technique for performing a double transcatheter valve replacement in the native calcified aortic and mitral annulus utilizing a percutaneous transfemoral approach.
