We report a case of a 81-years-old male, recently implanted with a Core Valve (CV) prosthesis and admitted to the ER for acute coronary syndrome. Coronary angiography revealed the patency of the coronary artery by-pass grafts but was impossible to cannulate the left main "imprisoned" by the CV prosthesis struts. Aortography showed an excessive gap between the CV struts and the coronary ostium . To cross the CV struts, we developed a "proboscis" catheter by cutting away the proximal end of the 7F JL 4 catheter and putting inside the 5F Heartrail catheter. The following angiograms showed a critical stenosis in the proximal obtuse marginal (branch), successfully treated with a bare-metal stent implantation. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
