Transcatheter aortic valve replacement in patients with systolic heart failure

Tariq Enezate, Jad Omran, Obai Abdullah, Ehtisham Mahmud

Abstract

Introduction Systolic heart failure (SHF) in patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS) carries a worse prognosis, and aortic valve replacement improves ventricular systolic function and survival.1,2 Therefore, SHF is an indication for aortic valve replacement in severe AS.2 Both surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) and transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) are associated with comparable survival and ventricular systolic function recovery in this group of patients.3 TAVR, however, is the recommended approach for patients with intermediate to prohibitive surgical risk; and SHF patients are often considered a high-risk group. As a re

Abstract

SAPIEN valve positive results Clinicians have achieved successful one-year outcomes in high-risk or inoperable patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement during the first two years since release of the valve (Sapien®, Edwards) commercially, according to results presented at the Euro PCR 2001 meeting in Paris, France. Despite high predicted mortality and multiple co-morbidities in many of these patients, survival at one year was 76% in the 1,038 patients treated as part of Cohort I (first year of commercialisation), and 77% in the 1,269 patients treated as part of Cohort II (second year of commercialisation).  Since November
