New treatment options lead to increased referral, awareness, and proper treatment
“A significant population of patients with AS are still treated medically.”
–S.C. Malaisrie, Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute, Northwestern University Memorial Hospital, Chicago, Illinois1
Impact of TAVI on Referrals1
A retrospective study determined that the introduction of TAVI was associated with an increase in aortic valve replacement referrals and a decrease in the rate of unoperated AS. This positive impact was due to increases in both TAVI and AVR volume. Increased volume was not associated with worse patient survival.1
