Transcatheter aortic valve replacement is a common treatment method for patients with severe aortic stenosis, who are either at high-risk or non-eligible for surgery. One of the rare, but major complications of this method is valve migration, which usually occurs during the intervention. The assessment of the Heart Team before transcatheter aortic valve replacement is determinant for the “to-do list” for the bail-out procedure. Discussion of the possible major complications and interventional plans may save the patient’s life in case of life-threatening transcatheter aortic valve replacement complications. Herein, we report a successful surgical management of valve migration occurred during transcatheter aortic valve replacement in a low-risk patient with bicuspid aortic valve.
