Transcatheter Mitral Paravalvular Leak Closure Facilitated by Preprocedural Cardiac CT for Simulation of Fluoroscopic Anatomy and Paravalvular Defect Localization

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Paravalvular leakage (PVL) occurs in 6%-15% of cases after surgical heart valve replacement. A percutaneous approach is increasingly used to close PVLs as an alternative to repeat surgery. Computed tomography (CT) can be used for simulation of fluoroscopic cardiac anatomy. This technique allows preprocedural definition of optimal C-arm angulations and PVL localization in reference to fluoroscopic views. It is very helpful for guidewire crossing of the PVL and positioning of the closure device. We report a case with the first use of dedicated software for fluoroscopic simulation (FluoroCT) in transcatheter mitral PVL closure.
