Paravalvular leaks (PVLs) are a well-recognized complication of prosthetic valve replacement. Perivalvular prosthetic regurgitation causes significant morbidity and is associated with high perioperative mortality if open surgical repair is required. PVLs manifest with symptoms of congestive heart failure, hemolysis, or in most cases, the combination of both. In recent years, the development of imaging and device techniques significantly shortened the duration of fluoroscopy and procedure success was achieved. Percutaneous transcatheter closure of PVLs with a specific device causes symptomatic improvement. We present a case of transcatheter closure of aortic paravalvular insufficiency with amplatzer duct occluder 2 device.
