Surgeons’ Claim on Low-Risk Patients with Aortic Stenosis

Surgeons’ Claim on Low-Risk Patients with Aortic Stenosis

Recent randomized trials including low-risk patients showed positive results for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) compared with surgical aortic valve replacement. However, surgeons argue that these cases fail to consider patients from daily clinical practice, but rather include a population that has been carefully selected for randomized trials. Patients with non-tricuspid aortic stenosis, with severe

AAS vs Warfarin in Low Risk TAVR

We are still discussing the adequate antithrombotic scheme after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Additionally, we are treating a much wider array of patients ranging from low risk to inoperable.  And there is yet one more important point: hypo-attenuated leaflet thickening diagnosed by CT. We are still unaware of the impact they have on device

Engrosamiento e inmovilidad de las valvas en el Evolut Low Risk

Leaflet Thickening and Immobility in Evolut Low Risk

Leaflet thickening and immobility caused by thrombosis have been reported for both surgical and transcatheter bioprostheses. This phenomenon is diagnosed through hypoattenuation, thickening, and lack of motion, as observed through computed tomography (CT) imaging. The incidence and, especially, the clinical implications of this phenomenon remain unclear, but they are of great interest, particularly in a

TAVR Reaches Low-Risk Patients with Bicuspid Valves

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) seems to be safe in low-risk patients with bicuspid aortic valve stenosis. Their hospital length of stay was very short, with zero mortality, and zero disabling stroke. Subclinical leaflet thrombosis and device durability are still unknown. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved TAVR for low-risk patients. However,

Virtual ACC 2020 | First Results of Evolut in Low-Risk Bicuspid Valves

The initial results of this study presented “virtually” at the American College of Cardiology (ACC) 2020 Scientific Session suggest that patients with severe bicuspid aortic stenosis can be treated with self-expandable valve Evolut. This is a small study presenting its 30-day outcomes. There is still a long way to go. The rate of all-cause mortality

Virtual ACC 2020 | PARTNER 3: TAVR vs CABG in Low Risk at 2 Years

The 2-year outcomes in patients with severe aortic stenosis and low surgical risk continue to show a numerical benefit in favor of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) vs. surgical replacement (CABG) for the primary end point of death, stroke or repeat hospitalization for cardiovascular reasons. However, the initially higher advantage of TAVR has been narrowing


Europe Grants Approval to Balloon-Expandable Valve in Low-Risk Patients; Self-Expanding Valve Still Waiting for It

The balloon-expandable valve has been granted approval in Europe for treatment of the complete risk spectrum of symptomatic severe aortic stenosis. Europe has recently approved an expanded indication for the Sapien 3 system for use in low-risk patients, as reported by Edward Lifesciences. Sapien 3, which includes the next-generation Sapien 3 Ultra, is the first transcatheter heart valve

Meta-Analysis of Large TAVR Studies on Low-Risk: Evidence is Consistent

This meta-analysis which included the 4 large randomized studies on transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) vs surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) in low-risk patients recently published in JACC, showed TAVR is associated with significant lower mortality compared against SAVR at one year follow up.  These results add to the mounting evidence showing that when it

Incidence, Characteristics, and Treatment of Valve Thrombosis After TAVR

Low-Risk TAVR Trending in All Papers

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) in low-risk patients with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis appears to be safe at one year. In a follow-up using computerized tomography (TC), hypoattenuated leaflet thickening was observed in a minority of patients, but it did not have a long-term hemodynamic impact. It should be noted that the management strategy for

TAVR Still Gaining Ground Among Low-Risk Patients

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has become the standard of care for patients with severe aortic stenosis and high surgical risk, and it should be considered as an option for intermediate-risk patients. In recent years, the number of low-risk patients treated with TAVR has increased. This study analyzes low-risk patients from the German Aortic Valve
