Block and Vasilis Babaliaros

In this study with 663 TAVI patients, the authors investigated the predictors for next day discharge (NDD). After excluding cases that did not have a minimalist transfemoral approach, 150 patients had NDD and 210 patients had non-NDD.

Predictors of NDD include male sex, lower creatinine, absence of atrial fibrillation and younger age. When compared to uncomplicated cases with longer hospital stay, NDD patients had similar 30-day and even superior one-year clinical outcomes.
