Predictors for permanent pacemaker requirement after transcatheter aortic valve implantation with the CoreValve bioprosthesis.
INTRODUCTION Changes in atrioventricular (AV) conduction and need for permanent pacemaker (PPM) are a recognized complication after open aortic valve replacement. We hypothesized that the need forExpand

Prosthesis-patient mismatch after transcatheter aortic valve implantation with the Medtronic-Corevalve bioprosthesis.
AIMS Prosthesis-patient mismatch (P-PM) is an important determinant of morbidity and mortality following open aortic valve replacement. The aims of this study were to report its incidence andExpand

Early regression of left ventricular wall thickness following percutaneous aortic valve replacement with the CoreValve bioprosthesis.
BACKGROUND/AIMS Severe aortic stenosis (AS) is associated with hypertrophy of the left ventricle (LVH), which is linked to adverse clinical outcomes. To date, the effects of the novel technology ofExpand

Comparison of complete versus incomplete stent frame expansion after transcatheter aortic valve implantation with Medtronic CoreValve bioprosthesis.
We sought to determine the significance of incomplete stent frame expansion after transcatheter aortic valve implantation with the Medtronic-CoreValve device. Incomplete coronary stent expansion is aExpand

Intestinal angiodysplasia and aortic valve stenosis: let's not close the book on this association.
The association between gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding due to angiodysplasia of the large intestine and calcific aortic stenosis (AS) has been a matter of debate. Recent studies suggest that thisExpand
