The most popular cardiac technology news in August 2019 was the FDA clearance for a new indication for both the Edwards Sapien 3 and Medtronic CoreValve transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) devices for low-risk patients. This puts the technology on equal footing with the previous standard-of-care of open heart surgery, representing a paradigm shift in cardiology.
