Is Hybrid Operating Room Necessary for Safe TAVR

Is Hybrid Operating Room Necessary for Safe TAVR

According to this sub-study of the FRANCE TAVI registry, mortality is similar for transcatheter aortic valve replacement in hybrid operating rooms vs. conventional catheterization labs. These findings support performing TAVR in conventional cath labs, which goes hand in hand with TAVR expansion, with improved logistics and organization costs. This study compared outcomes of patients undergoing

We Must Still Fear the “Big Five Complications” After TAVR

Surgical risk scores cannot be used for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and they usually overestimate procedural risk. There are 5 big complications after TAVR, specifically, that cannot be predicted by conventional surgical scores.   These 5 peri-procedural complications are considered important because they have a somewhat significant impact on survival after TAVR.   They are: 1)

La diálisis nueva post TAVI aumenta la mortalidad.

After 100,000+ Patients, TAVR Becomes the New Standard of Care

Eighty years did the trick for one the countries with more experience in transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), which made it the new “standard of care” to treat elderly patients. Following in the footsteps of pioneer Alain Cribier, Germany has led the adoption of TAVR in Europe and the rest of the world. Since 2008,

Surprises in the Physiopathology of Critical Ischemia

Luminal thrombotic occlusions associated with non-significant atherosclerosis are commonly observed in patients with critical lower limb ischemia, which suggests the possibility of thromboembolic disease as a great contributor to ischemia. This was particularly verifiable in infrapopliteal vessels, thus showing a possible mechanism of progression from peripheral vascular disease to critical ischemia, as well as a


Differences in Stroke between TAVR and SAVR in Intermediate Risk Patients

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is more and more frequent in lower risk populations that had previously been treated with surgical valve replacement (SAVR). A small difference in neurological events could have significant consequences when it comes to deciding a course of action. This study is a sub-analysis of the randomized study SURTAVI (Surgical Replacement

TCT 2018 | PORTICO-I: One Year Follow-Up for the Self-Expandable Reposisionable Valve

This study was simultaneously presented at TCT and published at JACCE, and it aims at showing the one-year outcomes of this new TAVR device, though follow-up is at 5 years. Primary end point was all cause mortality and secondary end points included clinical and echocardiographic events.   With a total 941 patients (82,4 ± 5,9

TCT 2018 | PARTNER 2 Valve-in-Valve: se mantienen los resultados clínicos y hemodinámicos a largo plazo

TCT 2018 | PARTNER 2 Valve-in-Valve: Clinical and Hemodynamic Results Maintained in the Long Term

The 1-year follow-up for this study was published last year in JACC, and it showed that transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) in failed bioprosthetic valves has low rates of complications, boosts significant hemodynamic improvement, and results in relatively low mortality. Now, the 3-year results are presented at TCT 2018. The study followed 365 patients who underwent valve-in-valve
