An interesting metanalysis, especially:

  • The ad hoc results of off-pump surgery.
  • The mean number of silent brain infarcts per patient was significantly higher in the transcatheter aortic valve implantation group (4.58 ± 2.09) compared with the aortic valve replacement group (2.16 ± 1.62, P=0.03).
