Transcatheter aortic valve implantation [TAVI] represents a paradigm shift in therapeutic options for patients with severe aortic stenosis [AS]. In less than 20 years, TAVI has rapidly disseminated to include a significant proportion of AS patients. The number of AS patients needing TAVI is expected to further increase. Since there is a limited number of centers performing TAVI, wait times are expected to increase. This might have a critical impact of AS patient life as mortality rate of AS patients awaiting TAVI, is substantial, ranging from 2 to 10%.
