  14. Number of Participants With Composite of Periprocedural Encephalopathy, All Stroke and All TIA [ Time Frame: 1 Year ]

    Stroke is an acute symptomatic episode of neurological dysfunction attributed to a vascular cause.

    Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) is a transient (less than 24 hrs) episode of neurological dysfunction caused by focal brain, spinal cord, or retinal ischemia, without acute infarction. No evidence of infarction if imaging performed.

    Encephalopathy is defined as altered mental state (e.g., seizures, delirium, confusion, hallucinations, dementia, coma, psychiatric episode).


  15. Number of Participants With Moderate and Severe Aortic Regurgitation [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  16. Change in NYHA Class From Baseline to 30 Days [ Time Frame: Baseline to 30 days ]

    New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional classification provides a way of classifying the extent of heart failure. It places patients in one of four categories based on how much they are limited during physical activity; the limitations/symptoms are in regard to normal breathing and varying degrees in shortness of breath and/or angina pain.

    Class I. Patients with cardiac disease but without resulting limitation of physical activity.

    Class II. Patients with cardiac disease resulting in slight limitation of physical activity. They are comfortable at rest.

    Class III. Patients with cardiac disease resulting in marked limitation of physical activity. They are comfortable at rest.

    Class IV. Patients with cardiac disease resulting in inability to carry on any physical activity without discomfort. Symptoms of heart failure or the anginal syndrome may be present even at rest.


  17. Change in Six Minute Walk Test From Baseline as Compared to 30 Days [ Time Frame: Baseline to 30 days ]
    The Six Minute Walk Test (6MWT)measures the distance that a patient can walk in a period of 6 minutes. The distance walked is measured in meters. This test measures the patients' functional status. The more meters a patient can walk over baseline indicates improvement in functional status.

  18. Change in Effective Orifice Area From Baseline as Compared to 30 Days [ Time Frame: Baseline to 30 days. ]
    Effective Orifice Area of the prosthetic valve measured via echocardiography to determine physiological area of blood flow through the valve.

  19. Number of Participants With Overall Acute Device Success [ Time Frame: 7 days ]

    Acute device success is defined as a subject who achieves a) successful vascular access, delivery and deployment of the device and successful retrieval of the delivery system, b) correct position of the device in the proper anatomical location, c) intended performance of the prosthetic heart valve, and d) only 1 valve implanted in the proper anatomical location.

    Device success is a 'technical' composite endpoint meant to characterize the acute device and procedural factors which underlie vascular access, delivery, and performance of the TAVI system. Echocardiography should be routinely utilized as the standard for measuring prosthetic valve stenosis and regurgitation immediately after TAVI, and should always be performed in a resting state, either within 24-48 h after the index procedure or before hospital discharge.
