OBJECTIVES We sought to characterize UK-wide balloon aortic valvuloplasty (BAV) experience in the TAVI era. BACKGROUND BAV for acquired calcific aortic stenosis is in a phase of renaissance, largely due to the development of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). METHODS Data from 423 patients at 14 centers across the UK were analyzed. RESULTS Patients were aged 80.9 ± 9.5 years; 52.5% were male. Mean logistic EuroScore was 27.3% ± 16.8%. Mean peak transaortic gradient fell from… CONTINUE READING
