A review of voluntary international multi-registry data on salvage of failed catheter insertion of stent grafts for aortic aneurysms
November 10, 2023
In this recording from the 2023 Transcatheter Heart Valves Greece conference, Dr. Michael J. Reardon, a cardiothoracic surgeon at Methodist DeBaket Heart and Vascular Center, discusses varying confidence in the shift in TAVI guidelines from operative risk to age.
Midterm Survival of Low‐Risk Patients Treated with Transcatheter Versus Surgical Aortic Valve Replacement: Meta‐Analysis of Reconstructed Time to Event Data
November 9, 2023
In this meta‐analysis, the authors performed a pooled analysis of time‐to‐event data from Kaplan-Meier curves of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and propensity‐score matched (PSM) studies comparing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) versus surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) in low-risk patients.
November 1, 2023
The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) and the European Association of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery (EACTS) published a joint press release regarding aortic valve replacement in low-risk patients.
October 26, 2023
The outcomes of the Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement in Low-Risk Patients at Five Years (5y PARTNER 3 trial) were presented during the late-breaking clinical trial session of TCT 2023 and simultaneously published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Survival Following Surgical Aortic Valve Replacement in Low-Risk Patients: A Contemporary Trial Benchmark
October 20, 2023
To create a benchmark for the use of TAVR for aortic stenosis treatment in low-risk patients, this study evaluated outcomes of similar patients undergoing SAVR. The STS database was used to isolate low-risk SAVR patients from 2011–2019.

As a part of the 2023 Australian Thoracic Aortic Symposium, Dr. Martin Misfeld presented on minimally invasive segmental artery coil embolization prior to cardiac surgery.
Outcomes of Treatment for Infective Endocarditis Following Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve Replacement
October 12, 2023
Transcatheter pulmonary valve replacement (tPVR) is a key therapy in RVOT pathologies but is associated with long term risks such as infective endocarditis (IE). In fact, some reports claim a higher IE risk compared to surgical pulmonary valve replacement.
