Summary– Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has been increasingly used in patients with severe aortic stenosis. The femoral artery is the most commonly used entry site for TAVI; however, other entry sites were also reported as transapical, transaortic, transaxillary/subclavian, and transcarotid in patients with occlusive peripheral arterial disease. In this report, a case of TAVI procedure through the brachial artery is presented.
