Abstract

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is a valid alternative to surgery in high-risk patients with severe aortic stenosis. Aortic annulus (AoA) sizing is crucial for TAVI success. The aim of the study was to compare AoA dimensions measured by multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) vs those obtained with transthoracic (TTE) and transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) for predicting paravalvular aortic regurgitation (PVR) after TAVI.
