In this case report, we present a patient status post left ventricular assist device implantation complicated by de novo aortic insufficiency. At 8 months postimplant, the patient underwent a reoperative aortic valve repair, without complete closure of the valve. Three months after reoperation, the patient developed cardiogenic shock secondary to recurrent, severe aortic insufficiency. Ultimately, the patient underwent percutaneous, transcatheter closure of the aortic valve with an Amplatzer Cribiform device (AGA Medical Corp, Plymouth, MN). Two months post procedure, the patient remains stable with improved symptoms and functional status, and without evidence of further aortic insufficiency or device migration.
