An elderly male S/P coronary artery bypass grafting ×3 with LIMA 12 years earlier presented with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis and was recommended to undergo Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). The patient underwent a transfemoral TAVR with a 26 mm Edwards Sapien S3 ultra valve which, due to pacing malfunction during deployment, embolized into the ascending aorta across the sinotubular junction [Figure 1]. A second 26 mm Edwards Sapien S3 was then advanced across the previously placed prosthetic valve and native aortic valve and deployed successfully [Figure 2]a and [Figure 2]b. Subsequent root angiogram showed no evidence of paravalvular or central valve regurgitation, and with the adequate flow to the right coronary artery, saphenous vein, and left internal mammary grafts.{Figure 1}{Figure 2}
