Spotlight on TAVR: Pivoting to the Low-Risk Population

Watch it now!

The FDA’s recent approval of EvolutTM TAVR for low-risk patients expands the use to potentially younger, more active patients signaling a significant shift in future treatment of symptomatic severe aortic stenosis. Learn from four leading cardiologists on the movement of TAVR into this low-risk patient population, how hospitals are increasing awareness among physicians and patients and the importance of connecting patients with heart teams. They also dive into parameters around hemodynamics and durability, excellence in patient outcomes, and how clinical practice and economics are evolving to meet this new demand. 

What You'll Learn

  • Why low-risk TAVR is changing the way severe symptomatic aortic stenosis patients are treated
  • Why heart teams offer the best treatment options for aortic stenosis patients
  • Which patients benefit most from TAVR vs. SAVR 
  • How the expansion of TAVR may impact hospital economics
  • How physicians are discussing options and clinical considerations with patients
  • Why cardiologists need to get the word out to referrers on which patients may benefit the most from TAVR
