Successful percutaneous treatment of late-onset femoral pseudoaneurysm after transcatheter aortic valve implantation procedure

Authors: Murat Celik, Uygar Cagdas Yuksel


Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is usually done via the transfemoral route and often a percutaneous vascular closure device is mostly used to achieve the haemostasis of the femoral artery access site. Nonetheless, vascular access site complications pose a major concern after TAVI. Failure of these devices may lead to undesirable events such as bleeding events, transfusions, acute kidney injury, and increased mortality, especially in the early period. However, late-onset complication of vascular closure device after TAVI procedure is not a very expected complication.
