Transcatheter Versus Surgical Aortic Valve Replacement in Patients With Diabetes and Severe Aortic Stenosis at High Risk for Surgery: An Analysis of the PARTNER Trial (Placement of Aortic Transcatheter Valve)
Sunday, March 23, 2014
Source Name: Journal of the American College of Cardiology
In this manuscript, the authors compare outcomes among patients from the PARTNER trial with diabetes who underwent surgical or transcatheter treatment. Among these patients with diabetes, 6-month and 1-year all cause mortality was lower in the transcatheter group compared with the surgical group. At 2 years this survival benefit was lost. Stroke rates were similar between surgical and transcatheter treated patients at 30 days and 1 year.
