transcatheter aortic valve implantation


The objective is to assess the influence of FEops HEARTguide on overall device success in TAVI patients with challenging anatomies (Cohort A) or in transcatheter heart valve (THV) platform selection (Cohort B).


Rationale Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is increasingly used to treat patients with severe aortic stenosis. However, by extending the indication for TAVI, simulation may become increasingly important to improve procedure execution, safety and efficacy.

Objective Assess the influence of FEops HEARTguideTM on overall device success in challenging anatomies (Cohort A) or in transcatheter heart valve (THV) platform selection (Cohort B).

Study design Prospective, observational multi-center trial with 2 cohorts.

Study population

  1. Cohort A: patients with challenging anatomy undergoing EvolutTM TAVI (Medtronic, Minneapolis, Minnesota), to evaluate the influence of FEops HeartGuideTM on overall device success through valve size and implantation depth.
  2. Cohort B: consecutive patients, eligible for TAVI with ACURATE NEO2 TM (Boston Scientific, Marlborough, Massachusetts) to evaluate the influence of FEops heartGuideTM on overall device success and PVL prediction.

Main Endpoints

  1. Overall device success conform VARC-2 including need for new permanent pacemaker. 2. Incidence of > trivial Paravalvular leakage (PVL) 3. Need for new permanent pacemaker
