Abstract

Paravalvular leaks are a well-known complication after prosthetic valve implantation. Those patients who become symptomatic pose a technical challenge to surgeons. Percutaneous repair has emerged as an attractive alternative to aid in the surgical closure of these defects. The technical complications encountered when attempting a transcatheter repair are of a different nature compared to those expected after a surgical procedure. We describe the case of a patient who underwent percutaneous aortic paravalvular leak repair complicated by wire entrapment through the aortic paravalvular leak.
