about the TAVI / TAVR-Template:
of TAVI / TAVR-Templates:
Clear and precise guidance while reporting TAVI / TAVR planning CTA
Optimal selection of the right TAVI / TAVR and improved procedural planning
Important background information and graphics
Flexible template reporting including free text elements
Guidance for radiologists in training
Scientific evaluation of reports for academic purposes and for TAVI / TAVR manufacturers
Aortic stenosis is the most common heart valve disease in adults. The TAVI procedure (Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation, or TAVR, Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement) has developed into a real alternative to open heart surgery for elderly or multimorbid people. In order for this procedure to proceed optimally, radiologists and cardiologists must plan the imminent implantation precisely. At this point, the TAVI / TAVR template developed by the European Society of Cardiovascular Radiology and Smart Reporting supports the diagnosis of planning CTAs. The radiologist is supported step by step in the evaluation of the planning CTA and the measurement of the aortic valve. Which measured values are of particular relevance for planning? Which projection angle would be suitable? Are there any relevant vascular calcifications along the access pathway? What must actually be included in the final findings so that the selection of the correct aortic valve and the implantation are successful?
The templates are available free of charge to all active ESCR members.
Please kindly log in with your username and password via the button in the top left corner. If you are an active ESCR member, you will see a dedicated link, which will allow you to access the templates. In case of any problems, please do not hesitate to contact the ESCR Office.
