ALBISTUR, Juan Sebastián; ROBAINA, María Noel  and  TRUJILLO, Pedro. Minimalist approach in transfemoral aortic valve replacement. First case reported in Uruguay. Rev.Urug.Cardiol. [online]. 2019, vol.34, n.1, pp.234-244. ISSN 0797-0048.

Aortic stenosis frequently affects the elderly population with high prevalence of comorbidities that increase surgical risk. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement has demonstrated its usefulness in patients with moderate to very high surgical risk. The development of this technique allows that in many cases, a less complex approach can be performed (minimalist approach), with the objective of decreasing hemodynamic repercussion, iatrogenic complications, costs, hospitalization and intervention times. This is the first case of minimalist approach in transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve replacement reported in Uruguay.

Keywords : Aortic valve stenosis; Minimally Invasive Surgical Procedures; Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement.
