Paravalvular leaks (PVL) are a well-known complication after prosthetic valve surgery. Effective non-surgical repair techniques are being developed using several off-label transcatheter occlusive devices given that there is no unique technique applicable to repair each paravalvular leak. We describe a technique used to simultaneously repair several PVL percutaneously, in a patient with double mechanical prosthesis using a single delivery system, by taking advantage of specific anatomical factors and selecting the best applicable devices.
