Artificial Intelligence in Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement: Its Current Role and Ongoing Challenges

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has emerged as a viable alternative to surgical aortic valve replacement, as accumulating clinical evidence has demonstrated its safety and efficacy. TAVR indications have expanded beyond high-risk or inoperable patients to include intermediate and low-risk patients with severe aortic stenosis. Artificial intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing the field of cardiology, aiding in the interpretation of medical imaging and developing risk models for at-risk individuals and those with cardiac disease. This article explores the growing role of AI in TAVR procedures and assesses its potential impact, with particular focus on its ability to improve patient selection, procedural planning, post-implantation monitoring and contribute to optimized patient outcomes. In addition, current challenges and future directions in AI implementation are highlighted.

Keywords: TAVR; artificial intelligence; cardiology; monitoring; procedure planning; risk prediction.
