Aims: Only few studies examined the respective impact of low flow (LF), low gradient (LG) and low ejection fraction (LEF) on outcomes following transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of pre-procedural stroke volume index, aortic valve gradient, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and different flow/gradient/LVEF patterns on the clinical outcomes of patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS) that undergo TAVR.

Methods and results: We analyzed the cli…
