TAVR vs SAVR - Transcatheter- vs surgical aortic valve replacement in high-risk patients 5-years survival

Transcatheter- vs surgical aortic valve replacement in high-risk patients: 5-years survival

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) with the CoreValve® system (Medtronic) and surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) show similar 5-year survival and stroke rates in high-risk patients, as shown by the MCV-US-2009-01 study (NCT01240902). Most patients remained free from severe structural valve deterioration (SVD) and valve reinterventions (VR).
