VIVID is the Valve-in-Valve International Data (VIVID) Registry. We are approximately 150 centers collaboration present in all continents. Our objective is to collect data on transcatheter heart valve replacement procedures, and then to use this data to create meaningful research, presenting it in an effective way to educate the interventional cardiology and surgical community on the advantages and disadvantages of the technique, and also providing insight on how to optimally perform it.
