Abstract

We read with interest the comments by Dr. Spadaccio and colleagues regarding the results of the OBSERVANT (Italian Observational Multicenter Registry) study, and we thank them for giving us the opportunity to clarify some of the issues raised in their letter. First, we would like to emphasize that OBSERVANT is a prospective observational study that enrolled consecutive patients with severe aortic stenosis treated with either surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) or transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) at 93 Italian centers between December 2010 and June 2012
