TAVR-surgery Parity at 5 Years, Good Echo Result Key: PARTNER 2A
The PARTNER 2A trial shows similar rates of death or disabling stroke at five years for transcatheter and surgical aortic valve replacement in patients with severe aortic stenosis at intermediate surgical risk, just as it had at its two-year follow-up. Early functional gains and quality-of-life improvements after surgery or transcatheter aortic valve replacement continued over the long term, with no significant differences between the groups.
