A match not made in heaven-TAVR prosthesis-patient mismatch with contemporary valves.

Authors: Safi LM, Turi ZG
Prosthesis-patient mismatch (PPM) in TAVR is relatively common Valve oversizing can potentially prevent both paravalvular leak and PPM PPM may be avoidable if the expected Effective Orifice Area/Body Surface Area ratio is considered in decision making pre-TAVR.
