Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The anatomic diversity of the aortic root, coronary arteries, aorta, and peripheral vessels create many different challenges that make safe and effective transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) difficult. Valve-in-valve TAVR can also mandate a number of varied strategies. This chapter contains the most common and important challenging anatomy scenarios related to TAVR, as well insights for being successful in each situation.
