|In patients with carcinoid syndrome, the development of carcinoid valve disease typically carries an unfavorable prognosis. We present the case of a patient with significant valvular dysfunction secondary to carcinoid valve disease. Valve replacement surgery was complicated by the development of prosthetic valve degeneration, ultimately||requiring percutaneous valve implantation in a valve-in-valve fashion. The technical details of the case, as well as a review of carcinoid valve disease, including its pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, diagnostic features and management considerations, are presented.
