Many studies have shown that transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) improves outcomes in patients with severe aortic stenosis in whom a classical surgical procedure cannot be performed due to the high risk. As one of the most frequent periprocedural complications of TAVI, paravalvular leak significantly affects the short- and long-term prognosis for patients undergoing implantation. In this paper, we analyze the most significant anatomical and procedural predictors of paravalvular leak after TAVI.
