Aortic root morphology in patients undergoing percutaneous aortic valve replacement: evidence of aortic root remodeling.


OBJECTIVE Percutaneous aortic valve replacement is an emerging therapy for selected patients with severe aortic stenosis. Preoperative imaging of the aortic root facilitates sizing and deployment of the percutaneous aortic valve replacement device. We compared morphologic characteristics of the aortic root in patients with aortic stenosis versus elderly… (More)
