AIMS The study analyses the outcome of patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) for different subtypes of severe aortic stenosis (AS) based on data from the GARY registry. METHODS AND RESULTS Low-EF, low-gradient (LEF-LGAS: EF ≤40%, MPG <40 mmHg), paradoxical low-gradient (PLF-LGAS: EF ≥50%, MPG <40 mmHg) and high-gradient AS (HGAS: MPG ≥40 mmHg) were observed in 11.7% (n=359), 20.8% (n=640) and 60.6% (n=1,864) of the study population, respectively.
