With advancement in transcatheter technology, numerous non-congenital structural heart lesions previously untreated, or treated with surgery are now amenable to transcatheter therapy. These therapies have centered on transcatheter valve replacement, however, other lesions are increasingly treated via the percutaneous approach. These procedures include patent foramen ovale closure, left atrial appendage occlusion, closure of post-infarct ventricular septal defects, occlusion of ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm and treatment of paravalvar leaks. This review will outline indications for and approach to each of these procedures in the context of the current literature base with emphasis on pre- and intra-procedural imaging modalities.
