Predictors of permanent pacemaker implantation after Medtronic CoreValve bioprosthesis implantation
Aims High-grade conduction disturbances requiring permanent pacemaker (PPM) implantation occur in up to 40% of patients following transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). The aim of this study was to identify pre-operative risk factors for PPM implantation after TAVI with the Medtronic CoreValve prosthesis (CVP). Methods and results We retrospectively analysed 109 patients following transfemoral CVP implantation performed between 2008 and 2009 at the Leipzig Heart Center.
