Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement Versus Aortic Valve Bypass
Conclusions TAVR and AVB relieve aortic stenosis and have similar and acceptable procedural mortality rates. AVB-treated patients had 1.75 times the STS risk score when compared with the TAVR cohort. Hospital charges for TAVR were nearly twofold those of AVB. Hospital reimbursement was similar, but AVB had two to four times the profit margin of TAVR. Longer follow-up for the TAVR cohort will determine whether survival is comparable to that after AVB at 3 and 5 years.
