Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Trans-catheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is now recognised as an effective way to treat patients with symptomatic aortic stenosis when open surgical repair is not feasible or considered too high risk. Retrograde trans-femoral TAVI (TF-TAVI) requires large bore vascular access (18-24F), and successful management of the access site is key to maintaining the minimally invasive nature of the procedure. This editorial reviews the current techniques available to facilitate percutaneous vascular closure and the common complications associated with vascular access.
