Delayed Aortic Dissection after Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation

Turk Kardiyol Dern Ars. 2023 Dec;51(8):577-579. doi: 10.5543/tkda.2023.26783.


Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) offers functional improvement for high-risk patients with aortic stenosis. Vascular complications after TAVI are known to occur frequently. Among them, aortic dissection is a rare but life-threatening vascular complication. We present a case of delayed aortic dissection following a successful TAVI.
