An Older Heart than Expected
Abstract

We present a rare case of aortic stenosis in a patient with adult progeria precluded for both surgical replacement (due to frailty and risk of endocarditis) and percutaneous approach (because of peripheral arterial disease). It is the first case of adult progeria with aortic stenosis treated through transapical access.
