Abstract

Access closure is a key element to successful retrograde percutaneous transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve implantation. It requires large-bore femoral arterial access (18Fr-28Fr) which most operators manage with surgical access and closure under general anesthesia. We report a case example of how, using our center s peripheral interventional experience, we have developed a simple five step technique to achieve hemostasis percutaneously.
