As the indications for Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) continue to expand, understanding appropriate patient selection is becoming an area of growing interest. The presence of Liver cirrhosis has been previously proven to increase perioperative morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing general surgical procedures.
