Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) emerged as a minimally invasive alternative to Surgical Aortic Valve Replacement (SAVR) and is on the rise. Given the expansion of TAVR in the current era to young and low-to-intermediate risk patients, it is important to anticipate that this population will likely outlive their TAVR valves. Those who are unable to undergo redo-TAVR will likely require surgical explantation and a SAVR instead. Therefore, it is imperative to be familiar with the surgical techniques and pitfalls needed for explantation of these failed valves.
