Cover Story (view full-size image): No previous study has simultaneously addressed the prognostic impacts of gender and atrial fibrillation (AF) in transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) patients. This observational study analyzing a multicenter TAVI registry database in Japan clarified that cumulative incidences of critical adverse events within 5 years after TAVI was highest in male patients with AF. Moreover, Cox proportional hazard analyses elucidated that male gender and AF independently predicted poor long-term outcomes, whereas these two factors had no synergistic effect. The present findings indicate the clinical significance of gender and AF for identifying better treatment strategies and the need for careful postprocedural management following TAVI. View this paper
