Percutaneous management of valvular heart disease is becoming a reality, with multicenter trials supporting minimally invasive procedures for both aortic and mitral valve disease. Historically, the treatment of choice has been aortic valve replacement with conventional surgery for patients with severe aortic stenosis, as the prognosis of untreated patients is poor, particularly if the patient is symptomatic. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement is now available as a minimally invasive option to treat select high-risk patients with severe aortic stenosis. At present more than 30,000 procedures have been performed worldwide, mostly confined to patients at high surgical risk. The short- and medium-term outcomes have been promising.
