TAVR Success in sSAS Patients

A study of severe symptomatic aortic stenosis (sSAS) patients who received transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) found 30-day mortality of 2.2% for those who were high risk of surgical mortality/inoperable, and 1.1% for those at intermediate surgical mortality risk.
