With new technology comes new complications. We discuss the interesting case presented by Bjelic and colleagues regarding a missplaced TAVR valve into the inflow cannula of an LVAD, leading to hemodynamic collapse. The authors describe the pitfalls of the new technology and interesting surgical maneuvers to address these complications.
