Abstract

Aims: To assess outcomes after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) according to sex, with the two available valves and four recognised delivery approaches. Methods and results: VARC outcomes are reported according to sex for 305 high-risk patients consecutively treated in our centre, via available access routes utilising the Edwards SAPIEN™/SAPIEN™ XT or the Medtronic CoreValve ReValving System® devices. Three hundred and five patients underwent TAVI: 52.1% male and 47.9% female. Females had a smaller body surface area (1.84±0.16 m 2 vs. 1.70±0.16 m 2; p
