Pressbox (Press Release) - The primary endpoints of this study were device success, all-cause mortality (30-day and midterm) and combined 30-day safety endpoints as defined by the VARC (7). Device success was defined as successful vascular RAD001 datasheet access, delivery, and deployment of 1 prosthesis, and correct position and performance of the prosthetic valve. Quantitative variables are expressed as mean �� SD, and qualitative variables using numbers and percentages. Comparison of quantitative variables was performed with an unpaired Student t test or Wilcoxon rank-sum test. The chi-square test or Fisher's exact test was used to compare qualitative variables. A Cox regression analysis was performed to determine the predictors for midterm mortality. Statistical significance was defined as p <0.05. The data were analyzed with PASW statistics version 17.0 (SPSS, Chicago, Illinois). A total of 260 patients underwent TAVI using both commercially available bioprostheses: the Edwards valve in 222 cases (Cribier-Edwards [n = 13], Edwards-SAPIEN [n = 107], or SAPIEN-XT [n = 102], Edwards Lifesciences), and the third-generation CoreValve revalving Sirolimus system in 38 (Medtronic). Of 260 patients, 131 were women (Table 1). Female patients tended to be older than male patients (83.8 �� 5.9 years vs. 82.4 �� 6.5 years, p = 0.080), with less coronary artery disease (48.9% vs. 79.1%, p <0.001), less previous cardiac surgery (13.7% vs. 26.4%, p = 0.011), and less peripheral artery disease (26.7% vs. 40.3%, p = 0.020), whereas left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) was higher in women compared to men (53.5 �� 12.9% vs. 47.1 �� 14.6%, p <0.001). Finally, logistic EuroSCORE was lower in women than in men (22.3 �� 9.1% vs. 26.2 �� 13.0%, p = 0.005). Echocardiography showed a similar aortic valve area (0.59 �� 0.17 cm2 vs. 0.61 �� 0.13 cm2, p = 0.248) but a larger valve area index (0.35 �� 0.10 cm2/m2 vs. 0.33 �� 0.07 cm2/m2, p = 0.037) in women who had a smaller body surface area (BSA [1.65 �� 0.17 vs. 1.85 �� 0.16 m2, p <0.001]) compared to women with a larger BSA. The annulus size was also smaller (20.9 �� 1.4 mm vs. 22.9 �� 1.7 mm, p <0.001) as was the bioprosthesis size (23.9 �� 1.6 mm vs. 26.3 �� 1.5 mm, p <0.001). The Edwards valve was used in the majority (85.4%) of the whole cohort, and more PD98059 frequently in women compared to men (91.6% vs. 79.1%, p = 0.005) (Table 2). The minimal femoral artery diameter (7.74 �� 1.03 mm vs. 8.55 �� 1.34 mm, p <0.001) and femoral calcification score (0.37 �� 0.57 vs. 0.77 �� 0.75, p <0.001) were smaller in women compared to men. Device success was achieved in 89.6% of the whole cohort, without significant sex-related differences (90.8% vs. 88.4%, p = 0.516). Although there was no significant difference in the rate of major vascular complications between sexes (11.5% vs. 9.3%, p = 0.570), iliac complications were more frequent in women compared to men (9.0% vs.
