Severe valvular aortic stenosis (AS) is one of the congenital heart defects that may require intervention during neonatal period. Balloon aortic valvuloplasty has become in many centre’s the treatment of choice for neonates with critical or severe aortic stenosis. Usual approaches both ante grade and retrograde can be problematic in neonates. Despite the availability of the balloon valvotomy technology, experience with balloon aortic valvotomy has been limited to older children with valvular AS. We report the successful application of BAV in a neonate with severe valvular AS.
