Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is an alternative treatment method in high-risk patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS). Although TAVI is a minimally invasive procedure it is not free from complications. Here, the case is presented of a 61-year-old woman who underwent trans-subclavian aortic valve implantation to

 

treat severe symptomatic rheumatic AS. The procedure was complicated by the ventricular embolization of two Edwards SAPIEN XT valves during the procedure, but was successfully managed with emergency open-heart surgery.
