Percutaneous closure of femoral pseudaneurysm after TAVR

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Fully percutaneous transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TF-TAVR) is currently the standard of the catheter-based treatment of severe aortic stenosis patients. Even though experience, lower delivery catheters profile and improved vascular closure devices performances have resulted in an overall reduction of both vascular and bleeding complications after TAVR, femoral pseudoaneurysm due to incomplete local hemostasis may occur, prolonging the in-hospital length of stay, causing discomfort to the patient and potentially evolving in serious consequences affecting the outcome. We report two successful percutaneous ultrasound-guided closure of both the main and secondary femoral access pseudoaneurysm.
