Virtual ACC 2020 | COAPT: Better Quality of Life Translates into Harder End-Points

After transcatheter mitral valve repair with MitraClip, the COAPT patients saw improved quality of life, better survival rate and fewer hospitalizations for cardiac failure at long term follow-up.  Improved quality of life had already been presented, exactly one year ago at the ACC 2019. In that occasion, it was established that the MitraClip reduces symptoms

Virtual ACC 2020 | Unlike in TAVR, the Number of Mitral Valve Surgeries Does Not Improve the Outcomes of Transcatheter Mitral Valve Repairs

Soon, our website will feature an interesting study showing that sites with a higher number of conventional surgical aortic valve replacements had better outcomes in transcatheter aortic valve replacement procedures. The study featured in this article was scheduled for presentation at the American College of Cardiology 2020 Scientific Session along the World Congress of Cardiology.

Virtual ACC 2020 | Conscious Sedation in TAVR

According to the TVT Registry, patients who undergo transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) with conscious sedation have better outcomes, including lower mortality rates. A minimalist strategy always (sooner or later) proves to be superior across our whole range of procedures, from a simple diagnostic study with local anesthesia and a 4-Fr transradial access, to a
