Reason for not progressing to TAVI (n=26)Number of patients

Annulus too big for TAVI as seen on CT2
Surgical treatment preferred by Heart MDT—(AVR+CABG, AVR+ascending aorta replacement, AVR+MVR)4
Patient declined TAVI3
Poor left ventricular function, underwent balloon valvuloplasty only, there was no improvement therefore TAVI not performed2
Condition deteriorated while on waiting list, to a point where TAVI became unsuitable2
TAVI performed at another unit after assessment and work-up in our unit3
Patient did not attend for TAVI after CT scan3
