We present a 75-year-old male patient having aortic stenosis for which transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) had been planned. Patient developed cardiac arrest before TAVI. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) followed by 10 mg intravenous bolus nitroglycerine administration at the 40 min was per-formed. Patient was conscious and cooperated at the 80th hour following CPR and was stable hemodynamically. TAVI was applied on the 8th day and patient was discharged to home from the cardiology clinic on the 6th day after TAVI. Bolus nitroglycerine administration may have a place in CPR protocols, which needs to be evaluated in further clinical studies. Keywords: Aortic Stenosis, nitroglycerine, transcatheter aortic valve implantation
