Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The introduction of transcatheter aortic valve insertion (TAVI) has transformed the care of patients with severe aortic stenosis. The uptake of this procedure is increasing rapidly and clinicians from all disciplines are increasingly likely to encounter patients being assessed for, or having undergone this intervention.Successful TAVI relies heavily on careful and comprehensive imaging assessment, before, during and after the procedure, using a range of modalities. This review outlines the background and development of TAVI, describes the nature of the procedure and considers the contribution of imaging techniques, both to successful intervention and to potential complications.
