Whereas transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has become the gold standard for aortic valve stenosis treatment in high-risk patients, it has recently been extended to include intermediate risk patients. However, the mortality rate at 5 years is still elevated. The aim of the present study was to develop a novel machine learning (ML) approach able to identify the best predictors of 5-year mortality after TAVI among several clinical and echocardiographic variables, which may improve the long-term prognosis.
