Trans-axillary access is an alternative to femoral access in patients with iliofemoral occlusion for transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). Multilayer flow modulator (MLFM) stent is used in patients with complex thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysm. The MLFM stent is used especially in cases where large arteries such as the renal, celiac artery feed from the aneurysmal sac. There isn’t a TAVI case report in patients with MLFM stent in literature. We report two trans-axillary TAVI cases, first one of that have thoracoabdominal MLFM stents, the second one have occluded bilateral carotid and iliac artery.
