Aims: Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is performed through a transarterial approach with encouraging results in «one-type valve» registries. We report 30-day data from a mixed population of patients treated with either Medtronic CoreValve® (MCV) or Edwards SAPIEN™ (ES) valves.Methods and results: Forty-five patients had TAVI via the transarterial approach (21 MCV and 24 ES). Mean age was 81.8±4.2 years, Logistic EuroSCORE was 25.2±8.4%. Procedural success rate was 97.8%. In-hospital death rate was 4.4%. Vascular complication rate was 8.9%. Of MCV patients, 28.6% had a permanent pacemaker vs. 4.2% of ES patients; p=0.02. No additional deaths were observed between discharge and 30 days. NYHA functional class was improved at 30-days: 2.07±0.4 vs. 3.09±0.05, p
