TAVR in Pure Aortic Regurgitation: New Devices, New Outcomes

Pure aortic regurgitation has historically been considered a contraindication for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) due to the absence of calcification and subsequent device anchoring problems it poses. Initial reports on first-generation self-expanding valves for the treatment of pure regurgitation were somewhat discouraging, but devices evolved, adding repositioning capacity, different external skirts (pericardial, PET, urethane,

Percutaneous Device Closure of PVL: An Alternative to Surgery

Paravalvular Leak (PVL) occurs in 5 to 17% of patients undergoing surgical valve replacement. Percutaneous device closure of PVL represents an alternative to repeat surgery.   All centers in UK and Ireland performing percutaneous PVL closure delivered their data to the UK PVL registry. Data were analyzed for factors associated with mortality and major cardiovascular
