Subclinical leaflet thrombosis following transcatheter aortic valve replacement.

J Interv Cardiol 2018 Oct 23;31(5):640-647. Epub 2018 May 23.

Lenox Hill Heart and Lung, New York, New York.

Since the inception of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), there have been significant reductions in complications due to improvements of transcatheter heart valve (THV) designs and technologies. Given expanding TAVR applications, reducing complications further and better understanding THV durability has become a focus within the structural heart space. Recently, dedicated cardiac computed tomographic angiography (CTA) performed at 1 month post-TAVR has identified subclinical leaflet thrombosis (SLT), with rates as high as 40%. Read More
