Abstract

Regurgitation due to a paravalvular leak (PVL) is a complication that may affect patients undergoing surgical mechanical or bioprosthetic heart valve replacement. PVL can also occur after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) in patients with severe aortic stenosis and is associated with significantly worse outcomes.We report a case in which different closure strategies and devices were attempted and required to percutaneously close a severe PVL after TAVI in a patient with prohibitive surgical risk.
