Rapid-deployment aortic valve system was designed for the treatment of aortic stenosis to enhance minimally invasive surgical techniques and to reduce ischemic and cardiopulmonary bypass time. Up to now, there are no indications to apply this system in the setting of pure aortic valve insufficiency. We report the first case of rapid deployment Edwards INTUITY® Valve System implantation in a 78-year-old patient affected by pure aortic valve regurgitation, ascending aortic aneurysm and multivessel coronary artery disease.


KEY WORDS: Transcatheter aortic valve replacement - Aortic aneurysm - Coronary artery disease
