February 2010
Cardiology Today;Feb2010, Vol. 13 Issue 2, p18
The article discusses research on the association of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) with comparable predicted mortality in patients at very high surgical risk, with a reference to a study by J. Rodés-Cabau that was published in an issue of the "Journal of the American Colllege of Cardiology."
