Title: “Unlucky punch”: unexpected annular rupture during TAVR and successful treatment
Online publication date: 12-Sep-2022
Year of first publication: 2021
Language: english
Abstract: Although rare, annular rupture in TAVR is a feared and often unpredictable complication with relevant impact on in-hospital prognosis. Severe annular calcification is a common risk factor for annular rupture. We report on a case of annular rupture during TAVR with a balloon-expanded prosthesis in the absence of any annular calcification in the planning CT scan and illustrate the proposed pathomechanism as well as its successful immediate surgical management.
