Does Post-Dilation in TAVR Affect its Long-Term Outcomes?

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has widely demonstrated its significant benefits, both in high-risk and inoperable patients, as well as in those with intermediate and low risk. While paravalvular regurgitation has been a challenge, its management has improved with operator experience and a deeper understanding of CT angiographies. However, in cases of regurgitation, elevated gradient,

NOTION: TAVI with Low Risk at 4 Year Follow Up

Post-dilation in TAVI associated to more stroke and more paravalvular regurgitation

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. Moderate/severe paravalvular regurgitation (PVR) after TAVR is present in 10%-14% of all cases, according to different series. The treatment of choice is post-dilation, generally effective in most cases. However, this strategy carries a risk of stroke. The true impact of this conduct is still unclear.   This review analyzed 6 studies that included 5007 patients; 889 of
