Abstract

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has become an established treatment option for patients with aortic stenosis at prohibitive risk to undergo surgical aortic valve replacement. Despite conveying obvious clinical benefits and a decreasing frequency of complications, the occurrence of new conduction abnormalities and arrhythmias remains an important issue. Generally considered a minor complication, they may have a profound impact on prognosis and quality of life after TAVI. Therefore the purpose of this review is to assess and discuss the available information on clinical implications of both new conduction abnormalities and arrhythmias after TAVI.
