Risk Assessment in Patient Selection for Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement.

Abstract

Risk assessment models for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) versus surgical aortic valve replacement in high-risk patients and TAVR versus palliation in inoperable patients are based on surgical data and have limited discrimination and calibration in the setting of TAVR. Several novel risk models specifically designed for TAVR have improved… (More)
