Abstract

The transfemoral approach is the least invasive transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) approach, but the diameter of the iliofemoral arteries needs to exceed 5 mm. We report a case of limited access transfemoral TAVI by the “internal endoconduit technique,” which is well known as a safe and effective dilatational technique for thoracic endovascular aortic repair. Subsequently, we could deliver the device without iliac artery injury and we performed transfemoral TAVI.
