Tag: Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR)

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 of 10 mg daily had a higher risk of death, thromboembolic complications, and bleeding. Evidence Rating: 1 (Excellent) Transcatheter aortic-valve replacement (TAVR) is a treatment option for patients...

The association of depression with subsequent dementia diagnosis: A Swedish nationwide cohort study from 1964 to 2016 1. There is a significantly increased risk of dementia in patients with previously diagnosed depression, with the highest risk observed in patients diagnosed with severe depression Evidence Level: 2 (Good) The prevalence of dementia is on...
In patients who have previously undergone coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG), surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) can be a complicated procedure due to the risks of sternal re-entry and cardiac or graft injury. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) offers a less invasive approach that may be more optimal...
Association Between Preoperative Opioid and Benzodiazepine Prescription Patterns and Mortality After Noncardiac Surgery Strategies to amend clinician prescription patterns are of critical importance in addressing opioid abuse and opioid-related deaths across the United States. One potential approach involves targeting opioid-prescription practices in the perioperative period. However, little is known about...
1. In this retrospective cohort study, the rate of 30-day post-procedure stroke after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) remained stable during the first five years of US clinical practice. 2. 30-day stroke rates were similar between patients who received dual antiplatelet therapy, oral anticoagulants, or neither at hospital discharge. Evidence Rating...
1. This randomized control trial compared post-surgical outcomes between transcatheter aortic-valve replacement (TAVR) with balloon-expandable valves or surgical valve replacement in low- risk surgical patients, finding that patients randomized to receive TAVR had significantly lower rates of composite death, stroke or rehospitalization after one year. 2. Patients randomized to the...
1. Among patients with severe aortic stenosis at low-risk for surgery, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) with a self-expanding valve was noninferior to surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) with respect to a composite of all-cause mortality or disabling stroke at 24 months. 2. While all-cause mortality was similar between TAVR...
