Renal arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is an uncommon anomaly characterized by the communication between renal arteries and veins. Renal AVFs are often asymptomatic but are occasionally accompanied by hematuria or heart failure. Transcatheter closure with embolization is a safe and effective treatment for renal AVF. We herein report an 87-year-old patient with heart failure due to renal AVF who was treated by transcatheter embolization. She developed bacteremia with hydronephrosis, which is a rare complication following the embolization of renal AVF...

STUDY DESIGN: Case series. OBJECTIVE: To describe transcatheter closure of the Fontan fenestration prior to posterior spinal fusion in two children to prevent paradoxical venous air embolism during the operation. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Scoliosis is common among patients with single-ventricle congenital heart disease who have undergone Fontan operation and spinal surgery can offer physiologic benefits. Venous air embolism is a rare, but important reported complication during spinal surgery performed in the prone position...

A 40-year-old man with osteogenesis imperfecta type I submitted to multiple procedures of surgical mitral and aortic valve replacement was referred for refractory congestive heart failure due to significant paravalvular leaks (PVLs) of both mitral and aortic prostheses. Due to perceived very high risk of a further mitroaortic surgery, transcatheter closure of PVLs under three-dimensional echocardiographic guide was performed. Thus, four Amplatzer Vascular Plug type II (St. Jude Medical Corp, St. Paul, Minnesota, USA) devices were implanted into the aortic PVLs, and three Amplatzer Vascular Plug type II devices were used to occlude a huge mitral PVL...

AIMS: Clinical trials have shown that transcatheter aortic valve implantation for aortic stenosis compares favorably to surgical replacement in high-risk patients and is superior to medical therapy in those at prohibitive risk. There is uncertainty however on patterns and trends in transcatheter aortic valve implantation, especially focusing on Italy. METHODS: The RISPEVA study is a prospective Italian registry including 21 institutions. Patients have been enrolled since late 2012, and data collection includes several baseline, procedural, in-hospital, and follow-up details...

OBJECTIVES: To develop a novel delivery technique to overcome vascular size limitations for device closure of a secundum ASD in the young patient. BACKGROUND: The efficacy, clinical utility, and safety of transcatheter closure in comparison to surgical closure are well established; however, access vessel size remains a potential limitation to device selection in the young patient. METHODS: A retrospective medical record review of all cases of secundum ASD closure between April 2015 and April 2016 utilizing a novel delivery method described herein at two separate academic institutions...

BACKGROUND: Transcatheter device closure of postmyocardial infarction ventricular septal defect (PMIVSD) is less invasive than surgical repair. However, its feasibility, timing, outcome, and prognostic factors remain unclear. METHODS: This was a multicenter, retrospective cohort study. Between February 2012 and July 2015, a total of 10 (8 male and 2 female) patients with PMIVSD undergoing attempted device closure were enrolled retrospectively. The procedures were performed under general anesthesia with fluoroscopic and transesophageal echocardiographic guidance...

BACKGROUND: Endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) and transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) are widely spreading minimally invasive procedures performed mainly through the femoral artery. Prostar XL and ProGlide vascular closure devices are used in clinical practice for the hemostasis in these procedures and they have been shown to be safe and effective. PURPOSE: The aim of our systematic review is to compare the safety of these two devices for percutaneous closure of large arteriotomies in patients undergoing TAVR and EVAR...

BACKGROUND: As an alternative to open surgical repair, perventricular device closure provides minimally invasive treatment for doubly committed subarterial ventricular septal defects. However, unlike percutaneous transcatheter access, mini-thoracotomy is still needed. This report describes the percutaneous perventricular device closure technique and its short-term results for this type of heart defect. METHODS: Sixteen patients who had isolated doubly committed subarterial ventricular septal defects underwent percutaneous perventricular device closure...

Paravalvular leak (PVL) is a serious complication after surgical valve replacement or after transcatheter aortic valve replacement. Approximately 1-5% of PVLs can lead to serious clinical consequences, including congestive heart failure and/or haemolytic anaemia. For years, surgical re-intervention has been considered the treatment of choice for symptomatic patients with PVLs. However, surgical re-intervention is associated with a high risk of morbidity and mortality. Transcatheter PVL (TPVL) closure is a less invasive alternative to surgical re-intervention...

OBJECTIVE: To present our experience in transcatheter closure of calcified patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in older adult patients, which has rarely been reported. PATIENTS: From 2009 to 2014, a total of 16 patients (median age 58 years) with calcified PDA underwent transcatheter closure in our center. All patients were symptomatic with major symptoms being exertional dyspnea (in 12), palpitations (in 8), and fatigue (in 5). A continuous murmur was heard in all patients...

AIMS: In the current study we assess the impact of two different access-site suture-mediated closure devices (SMCD), ProGlide and Prostar, on vascular and bleeding complications after transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI), as well as on long-term mortality. METHODS AND RESULTS: From 2008 to 2013, 1,022 patients underwent transfemoral TAVI in two German centres using ProGlide (n=506) and Prostar (n=516) SMCD to close the access site. The primary outcome was the incidence of peri-TAVI major vascular complications according to Valve Academic Research Consortium-2 (VARC-2) definitions...

OBJECTIVES: Our aim was to describe our experience with the use of an ePTFE-covered nitinol self-expanding stent graft (GORE® VIABAHN® Endoprosthesis, Gore Medical, USA) placed in the common femoral artery for the treatment of suture-mediated pre-closure device failure following transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). BACKGROUND: Access site-related vascular complications (VC) following sheath removal related to pre-closure device failure during TAVR are common and treatment options may vary...

OBJECTIVES: To assess feasibility, safety, and efficacy of the use of 40 mm Amplatzer septal occluder (ASO 40) for the closure of large atrial septal defects (ASD). BACKGROUND: There is very little data available on closure of large ASDs with ASO 40. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Case records of patients who underwent ASD closure with ASO 40 between 2002 and 2014 were retrospectively analyzed. All patients had clinical, transthoracic, and transesophageal echocardiographic (TEE) evaluation prior to device closure...

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to report a large, single-center experience of percutaneous arterial duct (AD) closure using Amplatzer Duct Occluder II Additional Sizes device (ADO II-AS)(St. Jude Medical Corp, St. Paul, MN, USA). BACKGROUND: Transcatheter closure of AD remains challenging in low body weight patients and those who have a persisting shunt following a previous attempt at interventional closure. Recent technical advances in device design may address these issues...

OBJECTIVES: To describe a single institution experience with a new endovascular occlusion device used for transcatheter patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) closure in preterm infants. BACKGROUND: The PDA is a defect largely treated via cardiac catheterization except for the smallest patients.

Persistent ductus venosus as a cause of cholestatic jaundice is very rare. Treatment varies, but is usually reserved for infants in whom complications develop. We report a 5-week-old female infant with cholestatic jaundice caused by a patent ductus venosus and subsequent successful treatment via a transcatheter occlusion using a vascular plug device.
