The Issue of Coronary Ostia Cannulation after Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation
Received Date:August 27, 2021; Published Date:November 02, 2021
Transcatheter aortic valve implantation is progressively expanding its indications towards low risk, younger patients. The consequent expansion towards younger patients poses the attention on long-term considerations, such as the chance of requirement of future coronary interventions after TAVI. In the present article, we will examine the conditions that can favor an easier coronary re-access after TAVI and show three different cases that explain the importance of a proper TAV selection in this regard.
