A Rare Access Site Complication after Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation

In the majority of patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation, the transfemoral access is the suggested approach due to its less invasive nature and feasibility in patients with suitable vascular anatomy. The complications of the transfemoral access site are generally vascular; however, we herein present a rare case of colon perforation following the transfemoral procedure owing to prior abdominal surgery. A transfemoral aortic valve was inserted on account of severe aortic stenosis and a high probability of surgical mortality. The patient developed acute abdomen following the procedure. Hemicolectomy was performed because of colonic perforation caused by femoral catheterization. The patient was well at 3 months’ follow-up.
