Abstract

Background/aim: Electrophysiological changes are observed following mechanical stretches due to pressure overload in patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS). The electrical instability occurs after depolarization and dispersion of repolarization. The aim of this study was to evaluate changes in ventricular repolarization following transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI).
