3D Printing and CT Image Fusion in Paravalvular Leak Closure

During this live Journal Club presentation and expert case discussion, members of the ACC CV Imaging Section and JACC: Case Reports editorial board will review a case covering a giant paravalvular leak closure using a 3D printing model and CT image fusion to plan and guide the procedure. Attendees will have the opportunity ask questions via chat.

Learning Objectives

  • To evaluate the benefit of the three-dimensional trial model in patients with mitral paravalvular leak to improve the success of the transcatheter closure procedure and reduce the complication rate.
  • To consider the use of image fusion in percutaneous closure of paravalvular leak to facilitate leak crossover and decrease fluoroscopy time.
