TAVI in difficult anatomy

Session comprising selected PCR London Valves 2017 clinical case submissions

Facilitators: P. Chiam, A. Witkowski

Summary

Consult a selection of 6 cases to learn how to perform TAVI in difficult anatomy, in particular:
- Left ventricular outflow tract decalcification prior to TAVI: a simple way to prevent paravalvular leakage and mechanical complications
- Is contrast-enhanced CT necessary for emergent balloon aortic valvuloplasty
- Riding through twisty roads: Evolut R crossing a severely tortuous and calcified aorta
