Factor VIIa for Annulus Rupture After Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement.
Journal Article (Journal Article)
Over the last decade, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has emerged as an effective treatment for inoperable and selected high surgical-risk patients with aortic stenosis. However, management of procedural complications with TAVR represents a major challenge as most TAVR patients carry prohibitive or high-risk of mortality with open surgical conversion. Here we present a case of TAVR complicated by aortic annulus rupture that was successfully managed nonoperatively by pericardial drainage, blood product transfusion, and adjunctive administration of recombinant activated factor VIIa.
