OBJECTIVES We seek to identify predictors of 30-day mortality after balloon aortic valvuloplasty (BAV). BACKGROUND To date, there is no validated method of predicting patient outcomes after percutaneous aortic valve interventions. METHODS Data for consecutive patients with severe aortic stenosis who underwent BAV at the Mount Sinai Medical Center from January 2001 to July 2007 were retrospectively reviewed. Cox-proportional hazards regression was used to identify significant predictors of… CONTINUE READING
