Abstract

Paravalvular leak (PVL) represents a potential complication of valve replacement surgery. The 'gold standard' treatment for patients with severe prosthetic dysfunction, hemolysis or symptoms, is surgery. Reoperative valve surgery for such patients is related to high morbidity and mortality rate. The percutaneous closure of PVL is feasible and safe, when performed at experienced interventional cardiologic centers. Herein, the case is reported of a patient who showed a significant improvement in left ventricular systolic function after transcatheter closure of an aortic prosthetic PVL with an Amplatzer duct occluder II (ADO II). A review of the current literature is also provided.
