Abstract

Retroperitoneal hemorrhage is a rare but severe vascular access-related complication of transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve implantation. The diagnosis is often delayed because of nonspecific clinical presentations. Although the best management protocol is still controversial, endovascular treatment or embolization should be chosen in uncontrollable ongoing bleeding.
