Severe aortic regurgitation without calcification of the aortic annulus cannot be treated with transcatheter implantation of a balloon-expandable valve, however, self-expandable valves can be successfully anchored in the absence of annulus calcification. In this narrated video, Thielmann and colleagues present a case of transapical transcatheter aortic valve implantation in a 75-year-old man with pure aortic regurgitation grade II/III.
