Abstract

We present the surgical implantation in mitral position of the Edwards Sapien 3 valve for prosthetic valve endocarditis in a severely ill child after multiple valve replacements. The procedure was safely performed and provided adequate hemodynamic results in the short term. This report highlights the excellent potential of Sapien 3 valve for the treatment of mitral valve disease in children with a mitral valve annulus of appropriate size. Of note, the use of the Sapien 3 valve should be considered when a bioprosthesis is required at the time of valve re-replacement.
