Research conducted by Dr. Ioanna Apostolidou and Dr. Mojca Konia from the Department of Anesthesiology about the Anesthetic Implications of Chronic Lung Disease in Patients Undergoing Transcatheter Valve Implantation has been published in the Journal of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia.

This article highlights factors to consider for the aesthetic planning of patients with severe restrictive lung diseases undergoing TAVI.
