ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of a 55-year-old man who had mechanical aortic valve replacement for aortic regurgitation. His precordial echocardiography revealed a paravalvular leak (PVL) and an Amplatzer® vascular plug was implanted with transoesophageal echocardiography (TOE) and fluoroscopic guidance. The reason for the dislodged device being trapped in the left ventricle may be caused by increase of anatomical leak size or decrease of leak size during systolic or diastolic phase.
