Paravalvar Leak closure by Dr Malik

Dr Malik does a live Paravalvar leak (PVL)  closure- see the video of this highly complex case. The patient was very symptomatic with a huge hole in the centre of his heart, as a result of some sutures giving way a few months after lifesaving open heart surgery. He was now classed as inoperable by the surgeons who saved him the 1st time he was sick, Dr Malik put some “plugs” in and our patient has gone back to work!  This type of operation is done by a handful of operators in the UK- Dr Malik demonstrated this at a recent International meeting- the EST 2021 session on 13th February 2021. He works in London at Hammersmith Hospital, and OneWelbeck Heart Health.
