TAVR Linked to Better Long-term Health Status Than SAVR
from Cardiovascular Business
Patients with severe aortic stenosis who undergo transcatheter aortic valve replacement enjoy a minor but significant sustained health benefit that isn’t mirrored in patients who opt for surgical AVR, according to research reported at TCT 2019 in San Francisco. TAVR has evolved over the years, morphing from a surgical alternative meant exclusively for high-risk AS patients to an option for lower-risk candidates, and in the process it’s forced a paradigm shift in interventional cardiology.
