          Abstract

          Early stent valve thrombosis after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is a rare complication, which is diagnosed based on the appearance of clinical symptoms of heart failure and echocardiographic findings. After TAVI, transthoracic echocardiography is performed to assess transcatheter heart valve (THV) function. However, preliminary reports indicate the potential additive clinical value of multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) for the diagnosis of THV thrombosis. We sought to determine the value of MDCT for the diagnosis of THV thrombosis and the frequency of this complication after balloon-expandable TAVI.
