Aortic transcatheter heart valves have been successfully performed in hundreds of patients with severe dysfunction of a degenerated mitral bioprosthesis and high surgical risk for re-operation throughout the world. Transseptal approach may be more technically challenging but is a less invasive procedure, possibly has a lower mortality compared to transapical approach and provides fast patient recovery. Herein, we present a successful transseptal mitral valve replacement in a failed bioprosthetic valve reported as a rare case in Turkey. This case illustrates the feasibility and safety of percutaneous valve-in-valve implantations to treat a degenerated bioprosthesis
