AIMS Knowledge of longitudinal left and right ventricular (LV and RV) function after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is scarce. We hypothesized that the longitudinal systolic biventricular function in aortic stenosis (AS) patients is affected differently by TAVI and surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR). METHODS AND RESULTS Thirty-three AS patients (all-TAVI group, age 81 ± 9 years, 18 female), with EuroSCORE 18 ± 9%, were accepted for TAVI. Seventeen of these patients were… CONTINUE READING
