Recently there has been a noticeable resurgence in the usage of percutaneous balloon aortic valvuloplasty (BAV) by the development of less invasive endovascular therapies including transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). We performed BAV in a 91-year-old man with end-stage severe symptomatic aortic stenosis (AS) and an impending abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) rupture who had been refused surgical treatment because of the comorbidities with stage V chronic kidney disease (CKD) and severe left ventricular dysfunction. Improvement in hemodynamics and kidney function was observed after BAV. Subsequently, we performed endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) successfully for AAA using iodinated contrast. No deterioration of kidney function was confirmed after the procedure. The patient was discharged without any adverse events. At present, the possibilities of TAVI or surgical aortic valve replacement (s-AVR) are under consideration as the definitive therapy for the upcoming aortic valve restenosis. In conclusion, this inoperable patient with multiple comorbidities was successfully treated, at lower risk, by catheter-based two-stage therapy.
