PMID:  17055089     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Reoperations for mitral prosthetic paravalvular leaks presenting with heart failure or hemolysis are associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Transcatheter options offer an attractive alternative, though the method is under evolution and outcome is varied. This report gives procedural details of transcatheter closure of mitral paravalvular leak with Amplatzer septal occluder device.
