Prosthesis/annulus discongruence assessed by three-dimensional transoesophageal echocardiography: A predictor of significant paravalvular aortic regurgitation after transcatheter aortic valve implantation

European Heart Journal – Cardiovascular Imaging, 05/07/2012

Three–dimensional transoesophageal (TOE) planimetry of aortic annulus improves the assessment of prosthesis/annulus discongruence and predicts the appearance of significant aortic regurgitation (AR) after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI).
