Introduction and objectives: A certain degree of prosthesis oversizing (OS) is recommended for the SAPIEN 3 to achieve device success. However, an increase in OS may increase permanent pacemaker implantation (PPI) rates. We therefore investigated the influence of OS on device failure and PPI. Methods: A total of 804 patients were treated with SAPIEN 3 at 3 centers. Multislice computed ...
