OBJECTIVE Transapical-aortic valve implantation (TA-AVI) has evolved as routine for selected high-risk patients. However, paravalvular leaks >1+ remain an unsolved issue using current generations of transcatheter valve devices. The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of native aortic valve calcification on paravalvular leaks and outcomes using the Edwards SAPIEN™ prosthesis. METHODS One hundred and twenty consecutive patients (out of 307 TA-AVIs) with preoperative computed… CONTINUE READING
