Abstract

Access closure is the key to successful retrograde percutaneous aortic valve replacement. It requires large-bore femoral arterial access (18-28F) 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 technique to achieve hemostasis percutaneously. (c) 2010 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
