The randomized Partner study [1] has recently shown superiority of transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve implantation, in patients who are not candidates for surgical aortic valve replacement, when compared with conventional nonsurgical therapies. In patients who are not candidates for the transfemoral approach because of peripheral vascular disease or other contraindications, deployment of the SAPIEN valve (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, CA) in an antegrade fashion can be achieved through the… CONTINUE READING
