Spotlight session: bioprosthetic valve durability

React@PCR Moderator: J. Joseph


Consult the session video, which sheds the spotlight on bioprosthetic valve durability.

Learning Objectives

  • To learn more about the latest data from randomised controlled trials and registries concerning the durability of bioprosthetic valves
  • To fully understand the important statistical considerations when interpreting long term outcome data in current TAVI recipients
  • To appreciate the important difference between clinical and device-related endpoints and the need for a standardised definition of bioprosthetic valve durability and failure

Presentations available when logged in:

  • Clinically relevant definitions of bioprosthetic valve durability and failure - lessons from the surgical experience
  • Durability of TAVI bioprostheses - data from the randomised trials and registries
  • The pitfalls of long term survival analysis - implications for the regulators and future studies
  • Session evaluation and key learnings
