Abstract

Although transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) for severe aortic stenosis is becoming an established technique, the effect of gender-related differences is poorly described. We performed a gender-based comparison of high-risk patients undergoing TAVI with the self-expandable CoreValve Revalving System for severe aortic stenosis to evaluate early and mid-term clinical outcomes. From the Italian prospective CoreValve registry, 659 consecutive patients (55.8% women) who underwent TAVI were included in the present ...
