Özet

One of the problems is valve embolization at the time of transcatheter aortic valve implantation, which is a rare but serious complication. In this case, we have shown balloon expandable aortic valve embolization TAVI which is a rare complication and we managed with second valve without surgery. Although there is not enough experience in the literature, embolized valve was re-positioned in the arch aorta between truncus brachiocephalicus and left common carotid artery.
