Transapical transcatheter device closure of relapse left ventricular diverticulum: a novel minimally invasive technique for reoperation

Abstract

We describe a novel minimally invasive technique, transapical transcatheter device closure of relapse left ventricular diverticulum (LVD) under transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) guidance. The patient previously underwent LVD primary repair and mitral valvular replacement. The anatomical characteristics of the relapse LVD and its adjacent structures are… (More)
