Post-procedural aortic regurgitation in balloon-expandable and self expandable TAVR procedures: analysis of predictors and impact on long-term mortality: insights from the FRANCE2 Registry.

Source Name: Circulation
In this study, the authors evaluate the relevance of post-procedural-aortic-regurgitation (AR) following transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) in patients included in the FRANCE 2 registry. They compare outcomes and risk factors for post-procedural AR in balloon expandable (BE) and self-expandable (SE) prosthesis. Not surprisingly, post-procedural AR was significantly more frequent in SE than in BE prosthesis. Post-procedural AR ≥2 was a predictor of 1-year mortality. Risk factors for post-procedural AR were identified for BE and SE prosthesis.
