Incomplete Apposition at the Ventricular End of the CRS Was Not Associated With Significant Aortic Regurgitation (>Grade 2 of 4) as Assessed by Transthoracic Echocardiography Immediately Post-Procedure⁎
Aortic Regurgitation Post-Procedure
Incomplete apposition of the CRS at the ventricular end (at least 30° of circumference)
↵⁎ Apposition of the CRS could not be assessed in 5 patients due to insufficient contrast opacification. Significant aortic regurgitation was paravalvular in all cases.
↵† No patient had aortic regurgitation higher than grade 2.
