Abstract

Recent trials have highlighted the comparable mortality benefits and durability of the results for patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS) and high surgical risk managed with either transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) or surgical aortic valve replacement (AVR). Various national guidelines and international regulatory bodies have approved TAVR, thereby leading to potential wide usage and dissemination of this technique worldwide. Quality-of-life outcomes, in spite of being an important measure of success and acceptability of the procedure, have not been publicized as extensively. For high risk patients with severe AS, implementation of TAVR has resulted in comparable survival, but different and novel adverse events compared with AVR. We present an updated review focusing on the quality-of-life outcomes and issues with this new and important procedural approach.
