In selected high-risk patients, trans-catheter valve implantation is an emerging therapy for a degenerated bioprosthesis in need of repeated valve replacement. During the last two years, valve-in-valve implantations have mainly been performed in the aortic position and only rarely in the mitral position. Here we describe for the first time the case of a 62year-old female with severe mitral regurgitation of a degenerated Carpentier Edwards bioprosthesis treated by transjugular, transseptal implantation of a SAPIEN-XT valve. In conclusion this case, together with previous reports, show the feasibility and safety of percutaneous valve-in-valve implantations to treat a degenerated bioprosthesis.
