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

Catheter Cardiovasc Interv. 2019 Apr 01;93(5):980-981

Authors: Safi LM, Turi ZG

Abstract
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.
