  • A 52-year-old male patient, with a medical history of surgically repaired double outlet right ventricle presented with severe aortic stenosis (AS) and hepatitis C with cirrhosis, presented with New York Heart Association Class IV heart failure. During evaluation for a liver transplant, he was deemed a poor surgical candidate due to his aortic valve disease and cirrhosis with model for end-stage liver disease score of 14. Transthoracic echocardiogram showed severe AS with a mean gradient of 62mmHg and calculated aortic valve area of 0.74cm(2) with a normal ejection fraction of 65%. The patient underwent transfemoral implantation of a 23-mm Edwards Sapien commercial heart valve with significant mean gradient reduction across the aortic valve from 62 to 13mmHg. The patient was observed in the coronary care unit and discharged home 2 days postprocedure with his clinical symptoms greatly improved.
