Abstract

Background: The SAPIEN 3 (S3; Edwards Lifescience, Irvine, CA, USA) is a new-generation percutaneous aortic valve with better profile, more precise handling and positioning, designed to reduce the risk of post-procedural paravalvular aortic leak (PVL). The aim of this study was to compare the S3 valve and SAPIEN XT valve (SXT). Methods: The last 89 transfemoral transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) cases using SXT were compared to the first 111 cases using the S3. Results: Patient age and logistic EuroSCORE were similar (83.1 years vs 83.0 years and 18.2% vs 16.6%) in the S3 and SXT groups, respectively as were other baseline characteristics. The ratio of valve diameter/calculated annulus average diameter (CAAD) by multi-detector row computed tomography was significantly lower in the S3 group (1.06 vs 1.09, p
