BACKGROUND Identifying the optimal fluoroscopic projection of the aortic valve is important for successful transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Various imaging modalities including multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) have been proposed for prediction of the optimal deployment projection. We evaluated a method that provides 3 dimensional angiographic reconstructions (3DA) of the aortic root for prediction of the optimal deployment angle and compared it with MDCT. METHODS AND RESULTS Forty patients undergoing transfemoral TAVR at St Paul's Hospital Vancouver Canada were evaluated. All underwent preimplant 3DA and 68 underwent preimplant MDCT. Three ...
