OBJECTIVES To provide data on feasibility, safety and efficacy of balloon aortic valvuloplasty (BAV) as a bridge to transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). Background. There are no data on BAV use as a bridge to TAVI in patients at high risk of periprocedural complications. METHODS Between June 2007 to May 2009, 83 consecutive patients with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis (48 female, 35 male) aged from 65 to 88 years (mean age 81 +/- 5 years) were treated with TAVI.
