Abstract

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has become a treatment alternative for patients with severe aortic stenosis. As broadened indications and increasing clinical demand, the population referred for TAVR will become much more heterogeneous and anatomically challenging. Herein, we report an 88-year-old man with severe aortic stenosis and huge aortic annulus (annular area 831.8 mm2) successfully treated with overexpansion of a 29 mm Edwards SAPIEN 3 transcatheter heart valve.
