Abstract

A patient with a symptomatic mitral paravalvular leak was successfully treated by implantation of an Amplatzer (16 mm) occluder device (AGA Medical, Plymouth, Minnesota) at the defect via percutaneous direct transapical puncture of the left ventricle. We describe a novel technique for closure and immediate hemostasis of the transapical access tract, comprising two stainless steel coils deployed across the myocardial wound and a hemostatic matrix injected at the epicardium and within the subcutaneous tract.
