Aortic insufficiency (AI) following rotary left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation is an increasingly common problem with inadequately defined treatment options. Percutaneous transcatheter (PTC) closure of the aortic valve has been described as a potential non-surgical approach. Alternatively, we present a case of decompensated heart failure due to de novo severe AI following LVAD in which successful PTC closure of the aortic valve resolved the severe AI and allowed for clinical recovery and stability for more than ten months as a bridge to heart transplantation. © 2014 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
