Abstract

Percutaneous aortic valve implantation in patients with bicuspid aortic valve has long been the subject of controversy or even regarded as contra-indicated. Recently, the availability of second-generation valves as well as an improved understanding of valve anatomy and sizing have resulted in outcomes which are equivalent to those achieved in tricuspid valves. This technique may, therefore, be proposed to patients at high or intermediate surgical risk, whose anatomy is suitable for TAVI. Copyright © 2019. Published by Elsevier Masson SAS.
