Key topics regarding low risk patients

Considerations and factors for lifetime management of TAVI valves. Results from trials and discussions on surgical options. Includes example of how low risk patients are evaluated.

Pacemaker Considerations

How to counsel patients regarding pacemakers after a TAVI procedure if needed, with insights into the approach.

Gradients and selecting correct valve size

Discussion includes hemodynamics, gradients, and small-annulus patients. Rationale around why heart team approach is preferred.

Procedural considerations
