OBJECTIVES The long-term success of CoreValve® stent prosthesis (Medtronic) implantation for severe aortic valve stenosis is limited by postprocedural paravalvular regurgitation (PVR). METHODS We have retrospectively investigated preinterventional cardiac 256-slice computed tomography (CT) scans and aortography to define predictors for mild, moderate, or severe PVR, in a blinded fashion. RESULTS We investigated 100 consecutive patients with a mean aortic valve area (AVA) of 0.69 cm(2) and a… CONTINUE READING
