Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) indications are progressing rapidly as an alternative to conventional surgery for aortic stenosis cure. Despite a high rate of procedural success, some patients do not benefit from the procedure. The investigators hypothesis is that aortic stiffness may be of major prognostic significance after stenosis relief.
The aim of this study is to test the prognostic impact of aortic stiffness estimated by the volume of calcifications of the thoracic aorta on the CT-scan performed systematically before the procedure. This prognostic value will be assessed in 4 independent cohorts issued from 4 french cities (Lyon, Rouen, Paris, Clermont-Ferrand).

The downward displacement of the cuspal or pointed end of the trileaflet AORTIC VALVE causing misalignment of the cusps. Severe valve distortion can cause leakage and allow the backflow of blood from the ASCENDING AORTA back into the LEFT VENTRICLE, leading to aortic regurgitation.
A condition caused by underdevelopment of the whole left half of the heart. It is characterized by hypoplasia of the left cardiac chambers (HEART ATRIUM; HEART VENTRICLE), the AORTA, the AORTIC VALVE, and the MITRAL VALVE. Severe symptoms appear in early infancy when DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS closes.
Inflammation of the ENDOCARDIUM caused by BACTERIA that entered the bloodstream. The strains of bacteria vary with predisposing factors, such as CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS; HEART VALVE DISEASES; HEART VALVE PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION; or intravenous drug use.
Pathological condition characterized by the backflow of blood from the ASCENDING AORTA back into the LEFT VENTRICLE, leading to regurgitation. It is caused by diseases of the AORTIC VALVE or its surrounding tissue (aortic root).
A type of constriction that is caused by the presence of a fibrous ring (discrete type) below the AORTIC VALVE, anywhere between the aortic valve and the MITRAL VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
