A 72-year-old man presented with symptomatic, severe aortic valve stenosis and a chronic descending thoracic aorta dissection with descending thoracic aortic aneurysm. After careful consideration, a transcatheter aortic valve was inserted through a transfemoral approach. This case demonstrates feasibility, and consideration should be given to this approach in patients requiring intervention for aortic stenosis.
