Our aim was to investigate the accuracy of MDCT prediction methods versus actual angiographic deployment angles.Abstract: METHODS: Retrospective analysis of 2 currently used MDCT methods: manual multiplanar reformations (MR) and the semiautomatic optimal angle graph (OAG). Paired analysis was used to compare the 2-dimensional distributions and means.Abstract: RESULTS: We included 101 patients with a mean (+/-SD) age of 81+/-9 years. The MR and OAG methods were used in 46 and 55 patients, respectively. A >=5% change from the predicted MDCT range in left anterior oblique/right anterior oblique (LAO/RAO) and the cranial/caudal (CRA/CAU) angle occurred in 42% and 58% of patients, respectively. The mean predicted versus actual deployment angles were significantly different (CRA/CAU: -2.6+/-11.5 vs. -7.6+/-10.7, p<0.001; RAO/LAO 8.1+/-10.9 vs. 9.5+/-10.6, p=0.048; respectively). The MR method resulted in a more accurate CRA/CAU angle (CRA/CAU: -4.6+/-11.1 vs. -6.5+/-11.8, p=0.139; RAO/LAO 7.4+/-11.2 vs. 10.4+/-11.2, p=0.008; respectively), whereas the use of the OAG resulted in a more accurate RAO/LAO angle (CRA/CAU: -0.9+/-10.8 vs. -9+/-11.2, p<0.001; RAO/LAO 9.05+/-10.6 vs. 8.5+/-9.9, p=0.458; respectively). For the entire cohort, the 2-dimensional distributions and means of the predicted versus the actual angles were significantly different from each other (p<0.001). We repeated our analysis using both MDCT methods and demonstrated similar results with each method.Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: Currently used MDCT methods for TAVR implantation angles are significantly modified before actual valve deployment. Thus, further refinement of these prediction methods is required.Abstract: Copyright (c) 2018 Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography. Published by Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
