No data are available in the literature regarding the effectiveness and safety of transcatheter aortic valve implantation in patients who underwent previous mitral valve ring repair. Concerns exist related to the possible interference between the percutaneous aortic valve and the mitral annuloplasty ring. We report our experience with percutaneous aortic self-expandable valve implantation in a 76-year-old woman affected by severe aortic stenosis, previously operated on for "undersized" mitral annuloplasty repair of severe functional mitral regurgitation in dilated cardiomyopathy. No deformation of the nitinol tubing of the CoreValve device (CoreValve, Inc, Irvine, CA), neither distortion nor malfunction nor change of the conformation of the mitral ring occurred. No change in mitral function and regurgitation was evident at echocardiography monitoring, which was performed during the implant.
