An 86-year-old male underwent transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) for severe aortic stenosis with an Edwards Sapien 29 mm XT valve and percutaneous coronary intervention simultaneously. – with protocol! Read more

Oversizing in transcatheter aortic valve replacement, a commonly used term but a poorly understood one: dependency on definition and geometrical measurements

posted by Gregor Pache, M.D. | Dec 22, 2014
Gregor Pache, M.D.

The aim was to investigate the influence of geometrical parameters for calculation of relative oversizing in transcatheter aortic valve replacement, reported as percentage in relation to the native annulus size, to standardize reporting. Read more
