We report a case of transcatheter valve-in-valve therapy performed on an 85-year-old man with severe mitral bioprosthetic valve dysfunction. He was a high risk candidate for conventional surgery and he underwent placement of the Melody transcatheter heart valve into the mitral bioprosthesis via the right femoral vein.
