Over the last two decades, the medical community witnessed an outstanding and accelerated development on minimally invasive therapies. With the dorsal spine of supportive data from large randomized control trials, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), aortic and mitral valve-in-valve, mechanical circulatory support and peripheral endovascular interventions all share the need of accessing a vascular bed with a large bore catheter. Nevertheless, to date, there has yet to be a universal consensus on defining large-bore vascular access (LBVA) in the world of transcatheter therapies. We explore the evolution, characteristics and vascular compatibility of the current commercially available devices, analyze the devices along with access site-specific complications rates and finally review the present methods for percutaneous vascular closure.
