ACC 2021 | ATLANTIS 4D-CT: Apixaban and Sub-Clinical Thrombosis After TAVR

Indicating apixaban after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) does not significantly reduce the risk of sub-clinical leaflet thrombosis compared with the standard of care. These data come from the computerized tomography (CT) scan sub-study from ATLANTIS, presented during the scientific sessions of the American College of Cardiology (ACC) 2021 Congress. In patients with no prior

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

AHA 2019 | GALILEO-4D: Rivaroxaban in the Prevention of Post TAVR Valve Thickening and Thrombosis

This sub study of the GALILEO specifically looked at valve thickening and reduced leaflet motion after TAVR documented with 4D CT. Whether anticoagulation with rivaroxaban might reduce or prevent this phenomenon remained unanswered.  Patients receiving the same anticoagulation scheme than the general study’s (rivaroxaban + aspirin vs. aspirin + clopidogrel) were assessed by 4D CT
