Transcatheter mitral valve-in-valve replacement (TMVR) is a feasible alternative in high-risk patients requiring reoperation for failing mitral bioprosthesis. Such patients may present with hemodynamic instability or sudden complications, which may jeopardize the outcomes. We report a successful transapical TMVR in a patient, with severe kyphoscoliosis and on prolonged mechanical ventilation, with prophylactic extracorporeal membrane oxygenator support. This combined procedure may be helpful to reduce the complications of TMVR in critically ill subjects.
