Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)
Heart valve experts discuss procedural techniques and clinical evidence relevant to your TAVR practice.
TAVR with Evolut™ in 2021: contemporary techniques resulting in excellent patient outcomes - (24:28)
Drs. Harvey, Tchétché, and Yakubov discuss results from the Optimize PRO study, TVT-R PPI data, and expedited patient discharge.
Commissural alignment and coronary access strategies with the Evolut™ platform - (25:31)
Drs. Tang and Rogers discuss commissural alignment and the feasibility of post-TAVR coronary access with an Evolut valve.
A blueprint for bicuspid treatment: TAVR implant strategies for bicuspid patients - (31:48)
Drs. Forrest, Ramlawi, and Prof. Van Mieghem review recent bicuspid data, why the Evolut supra-annular valve should be considered for bicuspid patients, and discuss heart team considerations for selecting TAVR for this patient population.
Implantation considerations to minimize conduction disturbances in TAVR: the Latin American experience - (20:59)
Drs. Gada, Jaikel, and Mendiz talk about their centers’ experiences with the cusp overlap technique and discuss their outcomes.
SURTAVI five-year results - (11:44)
Dr. Popma catches up with Dr. Reardon and Prof. Van Mieghem at TCT 2021 to discuss key results from the SURTAVI five-year late-breaking clinical trial.
Valve durability meta-analysis - (4:26)
Dr. Attizzani shares key learnings from his meta-analysis comparing self-expanding TAVs versus SAVR and balloon-expandable valves.
Durability matters for the initial valve selection - (19:32)
Drs. Forrest, O'Hair, and Prof. Sondergaard review recent data on predictors of hemodynamic valve deterioration (HVD), eight-year follow-up from the NOTION trial, and two-year follow-up from the Evolut Low Risk trial. Durability and the correlation between residual gradient and HVD are also discussed.
Valve hemodynamics: new data in women - (18:43)
Drs. Herrmann, Modine, and Prof. Pibarot discuss differences in flow and gradients between TAVR and SAVR in women with small aortic annuli from EuroPCR. The importance of avoiding patient-prosthesis mismatch is also discussed.
