Abstract Percutaneous intervention is becoming an increasingly recognised modality for the management of prosthetic paravalvar leaks (PVLs) with particular utility in severely symptomatic non-surgical candidates. To date, application of this intervention has predominantly involved closure of mitral valve PVLs. Consequently, current literature on its application to aortic PVLs is limited. This article describes what we believe to be the first percutaneous closure of an aortic prosthetic PVL in Australia.
