Özet

A 72-year-old female patient with respiratory distress and chest pain was referred for echocardiography after which a severe aortic stenosis was diagnosed. From clinical perspective an AVR would have carried too much risk in this case, therefore TAVI with transapical approach via left anterior thoracotomy was the treatment of choice. In this case report, we describe our experience with this new procedure in our country.
