Case Presentation 72 year-old female with a past medical history of severe mitral stenosis MS with moderate mitral regurgitation MR status post bioprosthetic mitral valve replacement, chronic congestive heart failure CHF, pulmonary hypertension, atrial fibrillation AF, sick sinus syndrome SSS status post permanent pacemaker insertion, morbid obesity, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease COPD on home oxygen therapy, and obstructive sleep apnea OSA presented for evaluation of severe dyspnea. Due to her mitral valve anatomy she was not a candidate for mitral valve repair. Her STS Risk Score was 11 for repeat isolated mitral valve replacement MVR, thus the decision was to proceed with percutaneous transcatheter mitral valve-in-valve replacement.
