SPOTLIGHT: Standardised definitions for clinical and imaging endpoints after surgical and transcatheter valve intervention

In this presentation from PCR London Valves 2017, A. Baumbach, D. Capodanno, A. Lansky, M.B. Leon and N. Piazza focus on the durability, structural deterioration and valve failure, the neurological adverse events and on what really matters in clinical and patient-reported endpoints after surgical and transcatheter valve interventions.
