This is a retrospective review of 260 patients undergoing TAVI, looking at the relationship between aortic valve calcium score and post procedural paravalvular leakage. The results suggest that the amount of calcification significantly impacts the occurrence, the degree and localization of paravalvular leakage after TAVI.
