Left ventricular free-wall perforation can complicate catheter-based diagnostic or interventional procedures and may require immediate needle pericardiocentesis followed by surgical repair in about 20% of the cases. We describe the transcatheter closure of a left ventricular free-wall perforation as an option in the event of maintained access to the perforation site after defect creation.
