VASC-OBSERVANT II Substudy: Impact of Vascular Complications after TAVR

At present, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has become increasingly common to treat severe symptomatic aortic stenosis, with the transfemoral approach being the most common access strategy, associated to better outcomes vs. other access sites. Even though vascular complication rates (VC) have dropped given increased operation experience and improved devices, such as the use of

Combination of Percutaneous Suture Devices after TAVR to Reduce Vascular Complications

Current use of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has increased in intermediate-risk patients and has even been used in low-risk patients. Vascular access-related complications and bleeding are still frequent after transfemoral TAVR, being associated with poor short- and long-term outcomes. Using percutaneous closure devices has allowed operators to close the access site without surgery. The

Transfusion in TAVR: Caution Is Best

Periprocedural red blood cell transfusion in transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) correlates with increased mortality and acute kidney injury. It also resulted an independent predictor of 30-day mortality, irrespective of bleeding and vascular complications.  The global trend that limits transfusion, in all procedures in general, has finally reached TAVR.  The multicenter registry TRITAVI (Transfusion Requirements

Unilateral Vascular Access in TAVR: Our Main Procedure, Increasingly Minimalist

There has been a significant decline in vascular complications in the last few years due to improvements in device profiles and operator experience on transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Unilateral vascular access for transfemoral TAVR is as safe as bilateral access and it could be more comfortable for patients according to this study recently published
