Even "operable patients" can suddenly be deemed inoperable during an intraprocedural TAVR complication. The low incidence of a major complication prevents "crowd learning"; consequently, a high-volume TAVR center will have the greatest capability for a robust salvage response.Abstract: Copyright (c) 2018 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
