CSI Focus: Paravalvar Leak (PVL)

Dear Colleagues,

Paravalvar leak occurs after both surgical and transcatheter valve replacement/implantation. It affects all valves and can lead to haemolysis, heart failure and may increase the risk of endocarditis. Understanding the role of multimodality imaging in defining the complex anatomy, position and size of the defect is an essential part of procedural success. Defect location and shape can present challenges to crossing the defect and demands an appreciation of techniques. In particular, pre-procedure planning for access route is useful to improve procedure success and further optimise outcomes. Recently, dedicated devices had been developed and got approval.

CSI Focus: PVL will cover the topical issues for clinicians involved in the diagnosis, indications for closure, complications such as haemolysis and approach to management, as well as aortic PVL assessment, paravalvar leak closure after TAVR, mitral PVL assessment and mitral PVL closure. The program will include lectures from leading experts, debates, challenging case presentations, live case transmissions, case based discussions exploring transapical, antegrade and retrograde approaches and tips and tricks from experienced operators.


See you at CSI Frankfurt!
