Emergent Percutaneous Biventricular Support during Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement

Vikas Singh, Alan Heldman

Cardiovascular Division, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami, Florida, USA

Coronary obstruction following transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a dreaded complication which occurs in less than 1% of the procedures.

Temporary hemodynamic support may be required in cases of hemodynamic collapse while performing a high-risk percutaneous coronary intervention in these patients. A challenging case is described where

emergent percutaneous biventricular support (Tandem Heart for right ventricular support and Impella CP™ for left ventricular support) was used as a bridge to recovery in a patient with coronary obstruction during TAVR with the Edwards SAPIEN prosthesis.
