Transcatheter aortic valve implantation for aortic stenosis: a review of the clinical effectiveness and guidelines

Record ID 32012000033
Authors' recomendations: Limited evidence showed that trans-catheter aortic valve implantation has statistically significant clinical benefits compared to standard therapy or conventional surgical aortic valve repair. Long-term success and complication rates of the procedure are uncertain. Strict patient and procedural access selection are critical for a successful trans-catheter aortic valve implantation procedure.
