Transapical mitral Valve in Valve in Hospital México, report of two cases and literatura review

Surgical reintervention in patients with previous open heart surgery represents a high risk condition, with high morbidity and mortality in the perioperative period. Nowdays in selected clinical situations of patiens with failing bioprosthesis in mitral position, transcatheter percutaneous treatment allows the replacement of the mitral valve with transapical or transseptal access.

The transcatheter percutaneous mitral valve replacement has lower morbidity and mortality in comparison with conventional surgery, representing a therapeutic alternative, wich migth be the only option in high risk patients.

We present two cases done at our center with success using apical access and the ballon expandable device Sapien XT.

Palabras clave : failing; bioprosthesis; transcatheter; transapical; transeptal.
