Heart Valve Technology

This channel includes news and new device innovations about heart valve technologies, including the aortic valve, mitral valve, pulmonic valve, and tricuspid valve. This includes information on transcatheter valve technologies like transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR, or implantation TAVI), transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR), transcatheter and surgical valve repairs, ad surgical replacement valves.

Five-year results from the PARTNER 2A Trial found patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS) and intermediate surgical risk who underwent Sapien 3 transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) had similar rates of death and disabling stroke compared to those who had surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR). However, TAVR using a transthoracic approach had poorer outcomes compared to SAVR. #TCT2019
