Sehatzadeh S, Doble B, Xie F, Blackhouse G, Campbell K, Kaulback K, Chandra K, Goeree R
Record ID 32013000380
Authors' objectives: To update a previous report on the safety, effectiveness, and cost-effectiveness of TAVI, published in 2012.
Authors' recomendations: The findings of the 2-year follow-up with respect to mortality and adverse events were consistent with those of the 1-year follow-up. TAVI was also associated with improvement in quality of life, although results varied by cohort. Consistent with the 2012 report, TAVI may be cost-effective for patients who are not candidates for surgery.
