Improvements in QoL from TAVR in SAS patients

Symptomatic aortic stenosis (SAS) patients who underwent transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) experienced quality of life (QoL) improvements from 5.3 at baseline (10 point scale with 10=best imaginable health state) to 6.7 at one year, and 7.4 at four years post procedure.
