GIMENEZ, Daiana et al. A clinical case of mitral valve in valve implant. New skyline in the treatment of prosthetic valve dysfunction. Rev.Urug.Cardiol. [online]. 2021, vol.36, n.3, e704.  Epub Dec 01, 2021. ISSN 0797-0048.

Prosthetic valve dysfunction is increasingly common due to the aging of the bioprosthesis-bearing population, and it presents a challenge at the time of diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment. A multimodal imaging approach is essential for its management. In relation to treatment, a minimally invasive percutaneous valve replacement procedure called valve in valve arises as a new alternative, mainly in patients with high surgical risk. We present one of first local cases of percutaneous implantation of a transseptal mitral prosthesis within a dysfunctional surgical mitral bioprosthesis.

Keywords : Multimodal; valve in valve.
