Sheathless use of the Portico valve is feasible and appears to be safe, with excellent rates of complications and mortality in the short-term. Such an approach has the potential to further expand feasibility of TF TAVR to patients with severe peripheral arterial disease. Feasibility in patients with smaller femoral access and more challenging anatomy has to be proven in further studies. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
