During the last 15 years, transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has gained wide acceptance with good reproducible clinical and safety outcomes. Today, TAVI has not only overtaken conventional surgery as the standard of care for the treatment of patients with symptomatic aortic stenosis at high surgical risk, but can also be considered in selected intermediate-risk patients.
