Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement using DynaCT
Journal of Cardiac Surgery, 07/27/2012
Maeda K et al. – Authros report a successful transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) using syngo DynaCT (Siemens AG, Forchheim, Germany) in an 86–year–old man who had severe aortic valve stenosis. Syngo DynaCT is a cross–sectional radiological imaging system that facilitates intraoperative imaging via interventional angiographic systems; this navigation system is useful during TAVR, especially in cases of poor calcification at the annulus.
