Aortic stenosis is an age related degenerative disease of the aortic valve that causes narrowing of the valve and aortic regurgitation [1]. Transcatheter Aortic Valve (TAV) implantation is a percutaneous alternative to open heart surgery, which allows for the treatment of a cohort of patients for whom conventional surgery is deemed excessively risky due to high postoperative mortality rates or pre-existing illness [2].
