Mild-to-moderate aortic regurgitation (AR) after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is common and often clinically silent. Higher-degree AR may occur, with significant haemodynamic and clinical consequences. Treatment of this condition is challenging and there are no evidence-based therapeutic options. This image illustrates the successful percutaneous management of clinically relevant paravalvular leaks (PVL) after implantation of the CoreValve bioprosthesis (Medtronic, Minneapolis, MN, USA) with the use of vascular plug devices.
