TAVI in low-risk patients, what is required for TAVI to become the new gold standard?

Summary

TAVI…a new standard in lower-risk patients? With the publication of the PARTNER 2 results the world of interventional cardiology is buzzing with excitement.

Join P. MacCarthy, O. Wendler and R. S. Von Bardeleben to see where we stand today... To begin with, how do we define “lower-risk” patients? Do we really have enough data to “replace” surgery in these cases? What are our criteria for “safety”, especially concerning long-term survival? What about newer-generation technologies including valves and closure devices? And is there a trade-off between eliminating a paravalvular leak and a pacemaker? What are the next steps? Join the debate today!
