    Abstract: It has been suggested that valved stent deployment during transcatheter aortic valve implantation may be responsible for traumatic injury to pericardial leaflets, especially with balloon expandable valved stents. However, such an injury has not been described nor reported so far. We...

    The article focuses on emerging transcatheter therapies that are used for aortic and mitral disease. One example of transcatheter therapy for aortic disease is the Cribier-Edwards percutaneous aortic heart valve, which consists of three bovine pericardial leaflets. A transcatheter therapy for...

    Abstract: The first percutaneous transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) was performed in 2002 by Alain Cribier with over 10,000 valve implants since. Despite this, as with all new technologies we remain on a learning curve and continue to encounter new challenges and complications. We...
