Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Transcatheter aortic valve implantation is emerging as a promising, effective therapy for high-risk patients not eligible to undergo surgical aortic valve replacement. Infection complications have only rarely been reported. We report a case of probable endocarditis caused by coagulase-negative Staphylococcus following repeated attempts at implantation of a CoreValve bioprosthesis.
