Transapical versus transfemoral aortic valve implantation: a comparison of survival and safety.

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is a therapeutic option for high-risk patients with aortic stenosis. Procedural mortality remains high in comparison with conventional aortic valve replacement (AVR) because patients determined for TAVI are commonly denied conventional surgery. We aimed to evaluate access-related complications between the transfemoral (TF) and the transapical (TA) approach and to compare survival between TAVI and conventional AVR in propensity-score-matched patients.
