If the distance of the coronary ostia to the annulus or the diameter at the STJ is also on the small side, the smaller valve should be used. The calcification of the annulus is also important to consider in these intermediate circumstances. A heavy calcified, symmetric annulus is more likely to accept and seal the smaller valve. If there is very little or asymmetric calcification, a larger valve will likely seal better. The aorta, iliac, and common femoral arteries are assessed through non-gated acquisition (Fig.

Parikh and S. Kodali size—annulus size)/prosthesis size. The initial studies using cover index were performed with 2D measurements and demonstrated that oversizing by at least 8 % resulted in less regurgitation [51, 52]. However, it became clear that 2D measurements were not adequate since the annulus was a 3D structure. Currently, aortic annular area assessments are determined with 3D assessments derived from gated computed tomography angiography (CTA) or transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE). Several studies have demonstrated that valve sizing using multislice computed tomography angiography (MSCT)-derived annular areas results in less AR than sizing performed with either 2D or 3D transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) [53, 54].
