AIMS The aim of the study was to investigate the changes in quality of life (QoL) following transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) up to two years' follow-up. METHODS AND RESULTS One hundred consecutive patients (46 females, mean age 79.7 ± 6.1 years) with at least two years' follow-up who underwent TAVI in our institution, between November 2007 and September 2009, were enrolled in this study.
