Objectives: This report sought to study the impact of the balloon-expandable SAPIEN XT (Edwards Lifesciences, Irvine, California) transcatheter heart valve (THV) stent frame geometry and position on outcomes of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Background: Post-implant THV geometry and position might impact atrioventricular conduction, hemodynamic performance, and annular sealing. Methods: Eighty-nine consecutive patients who underwent TAVR with a Sapien XT THV had pre- and post-implant multidetector computed tomography, transthoracic echocardiography, and electrocardiograms performed to assess THV stent geometry, atrioventricular conduction, and hemodynamic performance. Results: The THV Circularity (THV eccentricity
