BACKGROUND Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is associated with a higher risk of neurological events for both the transfemoral and transapical approach than surgical valve replacement. Cerebral magnetic resonance imaging has revealed more new, albeit clinically silent lesions from procedural embolization, yet the main source and predominant(More)
Background—Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is associated with a higher risk of neurological events for both the transfemoral and transapical approach than surgical valve replacement.

The importance of cerebral embolization as the main cause of periprocedural stroke during transcatheter aortic valve implanta-tion has recently been demonstrated. Erdoes and colleagues 1 have reported high-intensity transient signals as surrogates for micro-emboli during all phases of the procedure, predominantly during valve implantation, with no(More)
