In the past years, transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has emerged as a promising option for the treatment of aortic valve pathologies particularly in the the presence of surgically high-risk situations. Importantly, a variety of specific procedural complications including acute coronary osteal occlusion, though very rare, has been reported in major clinical studies. However, little is known about the late impact of TAVI on coronary system at the macro and microvascular levels. On the other hand, clinical studies as well as real life experiences have shown variable rates of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) readmissions among TAVI recipients in the short and long terms. Within this context, it may be suggested that even though late coronary ischemic events arising after TAVI, to some extent, appears to be spontaneous or attributable to certain stressors, TAVI may also have the potential to directly account for, accelerate or contribute to the evolution of these ischemic events on follow-up. Accordingly, the present review primarily focuses on potential association of TAVI with late coronary ischemic syndromes along with a particular emphasis on its mechanistic basis and clinical implications among TAVI recipients.
