Abstract
The topic of my thesis concerns a case of self-limiting intrannular rupture following balloon expandable TAVI implantation. &#34;Annular rupture (or “annulus rupture”) in an umbrella term covering different procedural-related injuries that may occur in the region of aortic root and the left ventricular outflow tract during trancatheter aortic valve replacement. It occurs in about 1% of all transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) or, transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). Annular rupture is a rare, unpredictable and potentially fatal complication. It can be treated successfully if it is immediately recognized and adequately managed. The type of therapy depends on the location of the annular rupture and the nature of the clinical manifestations. Treatment approches include conventional cardiac procedure, isolated pericardial drainage and conservative therapy.<br><br>
