The authors aimed to analyze the outcome of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) via carotid arteries. Included are more than 10,000 patients. The study showed a similar two-year outcome regardless of access. Transcarotid TAVI was associated with higher risk of stroke but lower rate of access site complications.

This single institution study of outcomes for the treatment of supravalvular aortic stenosis over a 20-year period identified risk factors for reintervention or reoperation: age <1 year, smaller aortic valve or aortic root, and concomitant right ventricular outflow tract repair.

Aortic annulus size and shape were analyzed in computed tomography angiography after a reimplantation procedure in patients with bicuspid and tricuspid aortic valves. Prior to surgery, elliptic shape was observed in tricuspid valves and more circular shape in bicuspid valves.

Data from the PARTNER trials were assessed regarding post-procedural prosthetic valve endocarditis (PVE) after transcatheter aortic valve replacement and surgical aortic valve replacement. The timing and rates of PVE were similar between the groups, and they had a similar high mortality.
