Conformational pulsatile changes of the aortic annulus: impact on prosthesis sizing by computed tomography for transcatheter aortic valve replacement.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES This study sought to investigate pulsatile changes of the aortic annulus and their impact on prosthesis selection by computed tomography (CT). BACKGROUND Precise noninvasive prosthesis sizing is a prerequisite for transcatheter aortic valve replacement. METHODS A total of 110 patients with severe aortic stenosis (mean age: 82.9 ± 8 years… (More)
