Different biologic prostheses are currently in use for transcatheter aortic valve implantation. Recent experience has shown that balloon-expandable and self-expanding valves achieve similar clinical outcomes. In addition, numerous factors have been identified that are associated with favorable results with one or the other prosthesis type. At the same time, new prostheses with alternative stent designs and implantation techniques have been released on the market. Future research should aim at identifying further factors to ultimately enable prosthesis selection on an individual patient base
