Most Popular DAIC Content in October 2016

One of the most popular articles on October was a post-procedure MRI study of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) patients. It showed that showed 94 percent of patients have minor lesions in the brain due to procedural emboli. This has spurred additional interest in using embolic protection systems during TAVR procedures.
