Abstract

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) for failing aortic root and valve homografts has been described primarily via a transapical approach. We report the successful treatment of two patients with failing homografts by transfemoral (TF) TAVI. In both cases, TF TAVI was accomplished without technical difficulty and with good clinical outcomes.
