Degeneración de las válvulas biológicas aórticas: un desafío cada vez más frecuente

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

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

ACC 2019 | PARTNER 3: TAVI en bajo riesgo con menos eventos al año que la cirugía

ACC 2019 | PARTNER 3: Low Risk TAVR vs. Surgery, Fewer Events per Year

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. TAVR has largely been shown superior or non-inferior in high or intermediate risk patients.  Indeed, the development of new technologies, the more simplified procedure and the increased experience of operators and team have allowed these groups to benefit from this strategy. However, there is little evidence available on low risk

TAVI en bajo riesgo con “cero” mortalidad y “cero” stroke

TAVR in Low-Risk Patients with “Zero” Mortality and “Zero” Stroke

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is now the standard of care for patients with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis who are at extreme, high, or intermediate risk for surgery. This multicenter, prospective study (Feasibility of Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement in Low-Risk Patients With Symptomatic, Severe Aortic Stenosis) included low-risk patients and was approved by the United


EuroPCR 2018 | NOTION: Good TAVR Durability Compared with Surgically-Implanted Valve in Low-Risk Patients

Several studies are defining the role of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) in patients with low surgical risk. One of the main concerns for this population, whose life expectancy is much longer, has to do with TAVR durability compared with a surgically-implanted biological valves. The Nordic Aortic Valve Intervention (NOTION) trial was the first study

NOTION: 5-Year Outcomes of TAVR vs. Surgery in Low-Risk Patients are Promising

At 5 years, there were no differences in all-cause death, stroke, acute myocardial infarction, or all of these combined between low-risk, elderly patients who underwent transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) or conventional surgery. Taking into account reports from previous years, these results are not at all surprising. NOTION enrolled an all-comers population that was 70 years old

Luz roja para el TAVI en pacientes de bajo riesgo

Red Light for TAVR in Low Surgical Risk Patients

A new study raises an alarm against expanding transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) procedures to low surgical risk patients, since 2 year mortality seems higher in these patients with TAVR, compared to conventional surgery. This study will soon be published in Catheter Cardiovasc Interv. Expanding TAVR to low risk patients might involve risks we have not

NOTION: TAVI with low risk at 4 year follow up

Courtesy of the SBHCI. There is little data about the use of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) to treat patients with severe aortic stenosis at low surgical risk. Many of the questions involve long term duration of valves (over 10 years) when treating younger patients with longer life expectancy.   The NOTION study aims at comparing
