Overview

Paravalvular leak (PVL) occurs in 5% to 17% of patients following surgical valve replacement. Percutaneous closure can be an effective alternative to surgical reintervention.

This one-hour educational seminar brings together a leading faculty of Prof Ignacio Cruz (University Hospital of Salamanca, ES), Dr David Northridge (NHS Lothian, Edinburgh, UK), and Dr Martin Swaans (St Antonius Ziekenhuis, Utrecht, NL) to discuss what is paravalvular leak closure and what transcatheter methods can be used for successful closure.

These leading PVL interventionalists and imagers discuss their proven methods and techniques to ensure closure is achievable. Discussion will be focused on the procedure, imaging techniques, and a recent PVL closure case.
