Short-Term Outcomes of TAVR in Asymptomatic or Minimally Symptomatic Patients

Short-Term Outcomes of TAVR in Asymptomatic or Minimally Symptomatic Patients

Aortic valve replacement (AVR) is indicated for symptomatic aortic stenosis (AS), while close follow-up is recommended for asymptomatic patients, unless they have elevated aortic gradients, low ejection fraction, or abnormal stress tests. However, the optimal timing to perform AVR is uncertain, especially with recent evidence suggesting that patients with AS associated with signs of myocardial

TAVR in Low Risk Patients: 10 Year Evolution

The Treatment of severe aortic stenosis has experienced a significant revolution with TAVR, especially in high and intermediate risk patients, and it is now extending to low risk patients. In the US, nearly half of patients under 64 are being treated with TAVR.  One of the fundamental questions that still remains unanswered revolves around device

Does Post-Dilation in TAVR Affect its Long-Term Outcomes?

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has widely demonstrated its significant benefits, both in high-risk and inoperable patients, as well as in those with intermediate and low risk. While paravalvular regurgitation has been a challenge, its management has improved with operator experience and a deeper understanding of CT angiographies. However, in cases of regurgitation, elevated gradient,


Coronary Artery Disease in TAVR: Unsolved Dilemma

Aortic stenosis shares risk factors with coronary artery disease (CAD), and its prevalence varies according to age, reaching approximately 50% or more in some registries. Deciding when to treat and the need for percutaneous intervention presents a challenge. It has been established that epicardial stenosis at proximal level, or the medial segment, requires intervention, especially

Use of Apixaban and Post TAVR Valve Thrombosis

TAVR can be associated to early valve thrombosis, characterized by thrombi formation near or attached to the prosthetic valve, with or without valve dysfunction. This dysfunction is associated with increased leaf thickening and reduced leaflet motion, as well as reduced orifice area or increased transvalvular gradient. Triggered multislice CT allows dynamic valve assessment and thrombosis

ACURATE Neo2: One-Year Hemodynamic and Clinical Benefit Results

Both Acurate Neo2 and its predecessor, Acurate Neo, have proven their safety and efficacy in the percutaneous treatment of severe aortic stenosis. The Acurate platform offers a lower gradient and a larger effective orifice area, as well as a low risk of periprocedural complications, according to previous registries.  However, the first-generation Acurate device had some

¿Son las válvulas autoexpandibles una opción válida en las bicúspides?

Evolution of Bicuspid Valves at 12 Months

Severe aortic stenosis due to a bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) is uncommon, especially in individuals under 65 years of age. While there are usually no significant differences according to the type of valve when it comes to surgery, with transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) some may arise.  TAVR has seen significant advancements in the treatment

TAVR: High Implantation of Self-Expanding Valves Directly Impacts ECG

TAVR has been shown beneficial, especially in high risk or inoperable patients. However, there are limitations to its use, especially with self-expanding valves, which are the need for pacemaker implantation and ECG changes after procedure.  To address this matter, researchers assessed the right and left cusp overlap effect on 254 patients undergoing TAVR with self-expanding

MYVAL, a TAVR Balloon-Expandable Valve with Promising Results

TAVR has been shown beneficial over time, and with the development of new generation of prosthetic valves and implantation techniques, outcomes have been improved, reducing the incidence of leaks y and the need for definite pacemaker.  This study looked at the evolution of 100 patients with symptomatic aortic stenosis treated with Myval THV from Meril

La clave para tratar strokes: saber cuando detenerse

Predictors of Stroke at 30 Days and 6 Months After TAVR

While the rate of stroke has decreased since the early days of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), it remains non-negligible, reaching up to 1%-3% at 30 days. As TAVR progressively expands to low-risk populations and younger patients, identifying risk factors for patient selection and management in stroke prevention becomes crucial. While researchers have identified predictors
