Percutaneous Closure of Iatrogenic VSD and Paravalvular Leak: Two Complications of TAVR

Academic Article


  • TAVR is increasingly becoming a common treatment for severe symptomatic aortic stenosis. Although there has been marked reduction in intra-procedural complications with evolution in the TAVR technology, these complications remain a challenge. We present a unique case of paravalvular leak (PVL) and iatrogenic ventricular septal defect as a result of closing attempts of PVL. We aim to highlight our procedural approach to percutaneously repair the aforementioned complications using our heart team approach for decision making.
