Corevalve dislocation has been reported to significantly increase the perioperative risk for severe complications and poor outcomes. We describe the case of an 87-year-old man who was referred to our center for transcatheter aortic valve implantation and who experienced an original complication after Corevalve dislocation by subclavian approach. Indeed, during the attempt to retrieve the partially expanded and dislocated valve through the subclavian introducer sheath, we experienced a dislodgment of the valve from the housing sheath that led to a delivery catheter cone separation and systemic embolization.
