Özet

Severely stenotic aortic valves can be treated by percutaneous techniques. However, in rare conditions it could not be possible because of vascular access and valvular passage problems due to small and eccentric orifice. Hybrid approach to balloon aortic valvuloplasty may be considered an alternative to surgery. Here, we present a case of a patient with severe aortic stenosis who has had two failed attempts of percutaneous intervention.
