NOTION and UK TAVI Report Good Long-Term Outcomes

NOTION and UK TAVI Report Good Long-Term Outcomes

Both studies followed beyond 5 years patients with severe aortic stenosis who had undergone transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Findings included low rates of significant valve degeneration and failure, in both cases. While data on the long-term degeneration of transcatheter-implanted valves are scarce, follow-up from the NOTION trial of low-risk patients and from the UK TAVI

Acute Coronary Syndromes After TAVR: Frequent and Not All Undergo Coronary Angiography

Approximately 10% of patients who undergo transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) are readmitted for an acute coronary syndrome after a mean follow-up of 25 months. Male sex, prior coronary artery disease, and (surprisingly and hard to explain) nontransfemoral approach were independent predictors of acute coronary syndrome after TAVR, an event associated with high midterm mortality. While

How to predict post TAVR quality of life in “real world” patients

Despite the benefit for most patients, a small number of patients still show poor outcomes after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVR). This work was able to recalibrate a previously developed risk model to predict post TAVR quality of life and provide us with a potential tool to properly estimate the chances of good recovery, or

Galileo: Rivaroxaban After TAVR Stopped Due to Early Event Rates

Patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) randomized to rivaroxaban in the GALILEO trial experienced higher risk of all-cause death, thromboembolic events, and bleeding compared with patients who received antiplatelet therapy. The GALILEO trial was halted after an early peek of events at the data from the rivaroxaban (Xarelto; Bayer/Janssen) arm. These events included higher

Immediate Electrocardiography After TAVI, the Simplest Way to Predict Conduction Disorders

Taking into account a simple 12-lead electrocardiography performed immediately after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI), removing the temporary pacemaker immediately is safe in patients without right bundle branch block who are in sinus rhythm with PR interval <240 ms and QRS interval <150 ms. In cases of atrial fibrillation, a QRS interval <140 ms also reassures the decision

Predictors of Conduction Disturbances Requiring a Late Permanent Pacemaker

This analysis shows that baseline right bundle branch block and increased PR length after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) are independent predictors of advanced conduction disturbances requiring late pacemaker implantation. A simple electrocardiography can detect these potentially fatal conduction disturbances that might happen more than 48 hours after TAVR. Data from consecutive TAVR patients from

TCT 2018 | Mismatch After TAVR According to the TVT Registry

Prosthesis-patient mismatch (i.e. a difference between the size of the implanted prosthetic valve and the patient body size) in patients who undergo surgery is associated with worse outcomes. This may also apply to percutaneous prostheses, although that has not been well-studied yet. This work, presented at TCT 2018 and published simultaneously in JACC, analyzes this problem

TAVR: Pre-Existing Complete Right Bundle Branch Block Is Associated with Mortality

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. The fact that the presence of a complete right bundle branch block (RBBB) increases the risk of bradycardia, high-grade atrioventricular block, and need for a permanent pacemaker (PPM) after TAVR is well-known.   The impact of pre-existing complete right bundle branch block has not been well-studied.    This article analyses 749 patients enrolled in
