A 78-year-old man presented with chest pain and heart failure symptoms due to a significant right coronary artery (RCA) stenosis and an unusual aortic paravalvular leak. Different imaging modalities revealed an uncommon paravalvular communication between the aorta and the left atrium after mechanical aortic valve replacement performed
during the 1990s. Herein the case is reported of successful coronary intervention of the RCA stenosis and subsequent closure of an uncommon paravalvular communication between the aorta and left atrium after mechanical aortic valve replacement.
