JACC Case Rep
A 51-year-old man with past medical history of bioprosthetic aortic valve replacement presented in cardiogenic shock secondary to acute bioprosthesis degeneration with severe aortic regurgitation. Venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation is contraindicated in patients with severe AI. Use of left atrial venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation resulted in hemodynamic improvement, allowing patient stabilization for emergency valve-in-valve transcatheter aortic valve replacement.
