Anatomical and procedural features associated with aortic root rupture during balloon-expandable transcatheter aortic valve replacement
Aortic Valve Stenosis
Heart Valve Prosthesis Implantation
This study demonstrates that LVOT calcification and aggressive annular area oversizing are associated with an increased risk of aortic root rupture during TAVR with balloon-expandable prostheses. Larger studies are warranted to confirm these findings.
