Aims: Myocardial injury assessed using cardiac biomarker release is ubiquitous following surgical (SAVR) and trans-catheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI), preventing accurate discrimination between focal myocardial infarction (MI) and global injury. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) imaging was used to compare rates of new MI following SAVR and TAVI.

Methods and results: Identical CMR scans…
