Early aortic valve replacement linked with improved outcomes versus conservative management

1. Patients with asymptomatic severe aortic stenosis receiving early valve replacement had a lower incidence of operative mortality or death due to cardiovascular causes...

Rivaroxaban after TAVR linked with increased risk of adverse events compared to antiplatelet therapy

1. After successful transcatheter aortic valve replacement, compared to an anti-platelet based strategy, patients that received an anti-coagulation strategy including rivaroxaban at a dose...

Long-Term Outcomes Associated With Total Arterial Revascularization vs Non-Total Arterial Revascularization

1. Total arterial vascularization (TAR) resulted in reduced likelihood of myocardial infarction, major cardio- and cerebrovascular events, and death compared to non-TAR in those...
