Aim Transcatheter aortic valve implantation has become an alternative to surgery in higher risk patients with symptomatic aortic stenosis. The aim of the ADVANCE study was to evaluate outcomes following implantation of a self-expanding transcatheter aortic valve system in a fully monitored, multi-centre ‘real-world’ patient population in highly experienced centres. Methods and results Patients with severe aortic stenosis at a higher surgical risk inwhomimplantation of theCoreValve Systemwas decided by the Heart Teamwere included. Endpointswere a composite of major adverse cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events (MACCE; all-cause mortality, myocardial infarction, stroke, or reintervention) and mortality at 30 days and 1 year. Endpoint- related eventswere independently adjudicated based on Valve AcademicResearch Consortiumdefinitions.Atotal of 1015 patients [mean logistic EuroSCORE 19.4+12.3% [median (Q1,Q3), 16.0% (10.3, 25.3%)], age 81+6 years] were enrolled. Implantation of the CoreValve System led to a significant improvement in haemodynamics and an increase in the effective aortic valve orifice area. At 30 days, theMACCErate was 8.0% (95% CI: 6.3–9.7%), all-cause mortalitywas 4.5% (3.2–5.8%), cardiovascular mortality was 3.4% (2.3–4.6%), and the rate of stroke was 3.0% (2.0–4.1%). The lifethreatening or disabling bleeding rate was 4.0% (2.8–6.3%). The 12-month rates of MACCE, all-cause mortality, cardiovascular mortality, and stroke were 21.2% (18.4–24.1%), 17.9% (15.2–20.5%), 11.7% (9.4–14.1%), and 4.5% (2.9–6.1%), respectively. The 12-month rates of all-cause mortality were 11.1, 16.5, and 23.6% among patients with a logistic Euro- SCORE ≤10%, EuroSCORE 10–20%, and EuroSCORE .20% (P , 0.05), respectively. Conclusion The ADVANCE study demonstrates the safety and effectiveness of the CoreValve System with low mortality and stroke rates in higher risk real-world patients with severe aortic stenosis.

The benefits of cardiac imaging are immense, and modern medicine requires the extensive and versatile use of a variety of cardiac imaging techniques. Cardiologists are responsible for a large part of the radiation exposures every person gets per year from all medical sources. Therefore, they have a particular responsibility to avoid unjustified and non-optimized use of radiation, but sometimes are imperfectly aware of the radiological dose of the examination they prescribe or practice. This position paper aims to summarize the current knowledge on radiation effective doses (and risks) related to cardiac imaging procedures. We have reviewed the literature on radiation doses, which can range from the equivalent of 1-60 milliSievert (mSv) around a reference dose average of 15 mSv (corresponding to 750 chest X-rays) for a percutaneous coronary intervention, a cardiac radiofrequency ablation, a multidetector coronary angiography, or a myocardial perfusion imaging scintigraphy. We provide a European perspective on the best way to play an active role in implementing into clinical practice the key principle of radiation protection that: 'each patient should get the right imaging exam, at the right time, with the right radiation dose'.
