Association of aortic valve calcification severity with the degree of aortic regurgitation after transcatheter aortic valve implantation.
BACKGROUND This study sought to examine a possible relationship between the severity of aortic valve calcification (AVC), the distribution of AVC and the degree of aortic valve regurgitation (AR)Expand

Comparison of two-dimensional and three-dimensional imaging techniques for measurement of aortic annulus diameters before transcatheter aortic valve implantation
Aims Different two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) imaging techniques are used for procedure planning and selection of prosthesis size before transcatheter aortic valve implantation. ThisExpand

Evaluation of aortic regurgitation after transcatheter aortic valve implantation: aortic root angiography in comparison to cardiac magnetic resonance.
AIMS Aortic regurgitation (AR) is common after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). Intraprocedural assessment of AR relies on aortic root angiography. Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR)Expand

Differential Effects of Atropine and Isoproterenol on Inducibility of Atrioventricular Nodal Reentrant Tachycardia
AbstractBackground: Radiofrequency ablation of the “slow pathway” in atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT) relies on tachycardia non-inducibility after ablation as success criterion.Expand
