Today, increasing numbers of patients are presenting to clinical teams with signs and symptoms of mitral bioprosthesis failure. Whilst redo surgery is currently the treatment option of choice, many patients have multiple co-morbidities and are deemed to be of prohibitively high surgical and anaesthetic risk. Percutaneous transcatheter treatment can offer a potential solution for these patients. Herein is reported a case where simultaneous transcatheter interventions for paraprosthetic leak and mitral bioprosthesis implantation were performed via the transfemoral route, and an unforeseen complication was successfully managed.
