Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is expanding exponentially across the world as a result of growing positive evidence on its efficacy and outcomes on selected patient cohorts. It is now a class IA indication for high-risk patients with aortic stenosis and class IIA indication for intermediate-risk patients. The guidelines are likely to be updated soon to make TAVI class IA indication for intermediate-risk patients too with the publication of surgical replacement and transcatheter aortic valve implantation trial data. However, given the complexity of this procedure, it is imperative for the heart team involved in the care of these patients to have thorough understanding of the technical aspects of this procedure to allow most appropriate patient selection and the best possible clinical outcomes. This review summarizes key technical considerations influencing patient selection and the outcomes with TAVI.
