Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI), has emerged as a new treatment option in patients with severe aortic stenosis who are considered to be high-risk for conventional surgery. In recent years, TAVI has been widely used in Turkey as in all the world. Transaortic approach for TAVI is a new approach in patients with poor peripheral vessels. In this article, we report a 82-year-old female case with severe aortic stenosis and coronary artery disease presenting with several comorbidities who was treated with direct transaortic TAVI and off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting for the first time in Turkey.
