While much research is ongoing regarding the safety of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) compared to surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) after prior coronary artery bypass (CABG), there is limited data on morbidity outcomes and discharge locations among these two procedures. This article looked into a single center experience over fifteen years and found shorter length of stay, less new-onset atrial fibrillation, and more discharges home in the TAVR group compared to the SAVR group, with an overall improved morbidity profile.
