Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)

Featured

The aim of this study was to evaluate hemodynamic outcome, structural valve deterioration, and bioprosthetic valve failure beyond 5 years after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Demographic, procedural, and outcome data were obtained

Abstract: Objective. Cardiac power index (CPI) is an integrative hemodynamic measure of cardiac pumping capability and is the product of the simultaneously measured mean arterial pressure and the cardiac output.

We share our center’s experience with the use of transcatheter valvular therapies in the setting of failed bioprostheses.

Abstract: Objectives. We sought to assess the position of the CoreValve Evolut R/Pro (Medtronic) with respect to the left coronary artery (LCA) ostium and evaluate the impact of implantation depth on this relationship.

Little information is available on computed tomography (CT)-based predictors of stroke related to transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). The objective of this study was to determine whether anatomical features of the aortic valve and aorta visualized by CT are predictive parameters of…
