Catheter-based aortic valve implantation is increasingly being performed in high-risk patients with symptomatic aortic valve stenosis. For successful planning of the procedure, CT has been shown to provide crucial information concerning the aortic root as well as the peripheral access vessels. This article illustrates the increasing role of CT before transcatheter aortic valve implantation. 
Critical Aortic Stenosis in a Patient with a Abdominal Aort Dissection and Narrowed: Simultaneous Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation and Endovascular Aortic Repair
TLDR
The cardiovascular assessment of other comorbidities in patients with severe aortic stenosis and a high perioperative risk or a contraindication for open surgery is critical for ensuring better clinical outcomes. Expand
Role of computed tomography in transcatheter aortic valve implantation and valve-in-valve implantation: complete review of preprocedural and postprocedural imaging.
TLDR
Retrospective ECG-gated cardiac computed tomography (CT) today is the gold-standard imaging technique that provides three-dimensional images of the heart, thus allowing a rapid and complete evaluation of the morphology of the valve, ascending aorta, coronary arteries, peripheral access vessels, and prognostic factors. Expand
Transcatheter aortic valve implantation operators - get involved in imaging!
TLDR
All TAVI operators should know how to assess the annulus, the annular root, and the iliofemoral access, to improve outcomes of this evolving procedure. Expand
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement with a focus on transcarotid: a review of the current literature.
TLDR
This manuscript will provide a review of the current literature on transaortic, transapical, transaxillary and transcarotid approaches to transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) while focusing on the trans carotid approach. Expand
Role of Imaging in Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement
TLDR
The current state of imaging in the pre-interventional setting of TAVR with a special emphasis on CT is reviewed, including high-pitch, low kV acquisitions, and iterative reconstruction resulting in high image quality at substantially reduced scan duration, contrast volume, and radiation exposure. Expand
The role of computed tomography in the planning of transcatheter aortic valve implantation: a retrospective analysis in 200 procedures
TLDR
CT evaluation assures a safe, reliable and prognostically relevant method for TAVI preprocedural planning and is essential in order to minimize possible complications and to improve the quality of the therapeutic planning. Expand
The Iliofemoral tortuosity score predicts access and bleeding complications during transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve replacement: Data from the VIenna Cardio Thoracic aOrtic valve registrY (VICTORY)
TLDR
The impact of novel scoring methods of iliofemoral tortuosity on access and bleeding complications after transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve replacement is investigated. Expand
Three-Dimensional Transesophageal Echocardiography as an Alternative to Multidetector Computed Tomography in Aortic Annular Diameter Measurements for Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation
TLDR
3D TEE can be the solution for aortic annular measurements used to select the correct prosthesis for the transcatheter aorti valve implantation procedure in patients who cannot undergo computer tomography, and is used as an alternative in cases where MDCT is contraindicated or not available. Expand
Role of CT Imaging for Coronary and Non-coronary Interventions
TLDR
The role of cardiac CT for the guidance of different cardiac interventions will be described in this review, with widespread acknowledgment that CT is particularly useful for pre-interventional imaging with increasing implementation in clinical routine. Expand

SCCT expert consensus document on computed tomography imaging before transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI)/transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).
TLDR
This consensus document provides recommendations about the use of CT imaging in patients scheduled for TAVR/TAVI, including data acquisition, interpretation, and reporting. Expand
Dual source multidetector CT-angiography before Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) using a high-pitch spiral acquisition mode
TLDR
High-pitch spiral DSCTA can be used to assess the entire aorta and iliac arteries in TAVI candidates with a low volume of contrast agent while preserving diagnostic image quality, and sufficient image quality can be maintained even with low volumes of contrastAgent and reduced x-ray exposure. Expand
Transfemoral aortic valve implantation new criteria to predict vascular complications.
TLDR
Routine application of SFAR will improve patient selection for transfemoral TAVI and may improve outcome, and VARC major vascular complications increase 30-day mortality and are predicted by experience, femoral calcification, and SFAR. Expand
A method to determine suitable fluoroscopic projections for transcatheter aortic valve implantation by computed tomography.
TLDR
A simple method to predict suitable fluoroscopic projections on the basis of cardiac CT datasets permits prediction of suitable angulations for TAVI in most cases. Expand
Inverse Relationship Between Membranous Septal Length and the Risk of Atrioventricular Block in Patients Undergoing Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation.
TLDR
Short MS, insufficient difference between MS length and implantation depth, and the presence of calcification in the basal septum, factors that may all facilitate mechanical compression of the conduction tissue by the implanted valve, predict conduction abnormalities after TAVI with self-expandable valves.

Anatomical and Procedural Features Associated With Aortic Root Rupture During Balloon-Expandable Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement
TLDR
It is demonstrated that LVOT calcification and aggressive annular area oversizing are associated with an increased risk of aortic root rupture during TAVR with balloon-expandable prostheses. Expand
Prosthesis Oversizing in Balloon-Expandable Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation Is Associated With Contained Rupture of the Aortic Root
TLDR
To retrospectively investigate the potential cause of contained rupture of the aortic root in balloon-expandable transcatheter aortsic valve implantation (TAVI) by means of pre- and postinterventional multislice computed tomography, 72 patients underwent TAVI and 3 patients were diagnosed with contained rupture.

Percutaneous aortic valve replacement: vascular outcomes with a fully percutaneous procedure.
TLDR
Vascular complications occur more often if the minimal artery diameter is smaller than the external sheath diameter, in the presence of moderate or severe calcification, and in patients with peripheral vascular disease. Expand

TLDR
A strategy of underexpansion, with post-dilation as necessary, might play in role in reducing the risk of annular injury and paravalvular regurgitation in selected patients. Expand
