Surgical conversion following embolization of a TAVI device is very rare. We report the case of a 78-year-old woman who underwent a TAVI procedure. This procedure failed due to migration of the prosthesis, which is embedded at the foot of the TABC in the ascending aorta. This patient had an emergency surgical conversion. We want to draw attention to the fact that the management of the TAVI patient by the surgical team in case of conversion should be rapid and the surgical intervention should be short.
