In spite of being a less-invasive technique, transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) remains associated with potential serious complications. Left ventricular pseudoaneurysm (LVP) is a known, serious complication of transapical TAVI. However, this complication has not been described after the trans-femoral approach. We describe a case of LVP after transfemoral TAVI, emphasizing the importance of an immediate diagnosis of this potential life-threatening complication.
