This novel design is well suited for minimally invasive approaches and has particular advantages for patients with small, calcified annuli. The implantation technique is unique and echocardiographic assessment of valve cage shape, angulation and height are essential. The following discussion provides a framework of technical and sonographic considerations to help surgical teams achieve reproducible success with Perceval valve deployment.Abstract: Copyright (c) 2018.
