AIMS Long-term data on the durability of currently available transcatheter heart valves are limited. We sought to assess four-year clinical and echocardiographic outcomes in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) with the CoreValve prosthesis. METHODS AND RESULTS Between June 2007 and February 2014, 450 consecutive patients(More)
Periodic echocardiographic evaluation of valve function is recommended in all patients with prosthetic valves. Usually trans-thoracic echocardiography (TTE) is satisfactory to assess prosthetic function. Nevertheless when the TTE is suboptimal or in case of strong clinical doubt of prosthetic valve dysfunction, trans-esophageal echocardiography (TEE)(More)
BACKGROUND We sought to describe an optimized approach to coronary artery disease (CAD) screening and management in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). METHODS AND RESULTS When invasive coronary angiography showed CAD, the treatment strategy and completeness of revascularization was determined based on coronary anatomy. TAVR(More)
