Multiple transcatheter heart valve iterations have created an interesting range of options with which to perform transcatheter aortic valve replacement. The Lotus valve has several attractive features. The ability to eradicate even mild paravalvular leak mirrors the outcomes of surgical aortic valve replacement. New design iterations of the Lotus valve and refined sizing algorithms may help mitigate the need for permanent pacemaker implantation and consolidate its best-in-class results in terms of paravalvular leak. Ongoing trials should help define the safety and efficacy of the Lotus transcatheter heart valve in contemporary practice.
