Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Circumflex artery occlusion is an unusual but grave complication that can be intra-operatively challenging to identify. Various modalities of imaging are possible during transfemoral aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Fluoroscopy and/or trans-esophageal echocardiography maybe used for assessment during and after TAVR. Imaging dilemma can cause delay or alter diagnosis. We report a case of an imaging complication during TAVR which might have modified the outcome of the procedure.
