Measuring risk in valvular interventions: From low risk to futility
EuroIntervention , Volume 11 p. W23- W25

Their ability to predict outcome in high-risk patients remains poor and the question of utility or futility of an intervention can only be decided by a team of physicians with diverse expertise.
