Keywords:

  • computed tomography, for percutaneous aortic valve replacement;
  • cardiothoracic surgeons, traditionally using CT - to guide treatment of aortic valve stenosis;
  • aortic assessment;
  • iliac and femoral vessel anatomy - easily evaluated with CT;
  • advent of percutaneous technologies - for valve repair/replacement, interventionalists and surgeons working together;
  • ventricular wall thickness, sinotubular junction, aortic valve and aortic annulus;
  • lateral orthogonal view - tortuosity and deep diving of right external iliac artery;
  • caliber of vessels - appropriate for current delivery sheaths;
  • use of imaging, CT - learning from each other's strengths, the planning and workup needed for treatment of valvular patients
