A common complication of TAVR is development of conduction defects requiring pacemaker (PPM) implantation. These defects are not universally permanent.

New-onset left bundle branch block after transcatheter aortic valve replacement is associated with adverse long-term clinical outcomes in intermediate-risk patients: an analysis from the PARTNER II trial.
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is now an established therapy for intermediate-risk surgical candidates with symptomatic, severe aortic stenosis. The clinical impact of new-onset left bu...
Trans-catheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has become an alternative to surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) in high and intermediate risk patients with aortic stenosis. TAVR programs are spre...
In recent years, sutureless aortic valve replacement (SU-AVR) and transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) have emerged as viable alternatives to standard surgical aortic valve replacement (AVR) ...
The thoracic paravertebral block (PVB), a technique of post-thoracotomy analgesia of similar effectiveness as continuous epidural analgesia (CEA) but with a better safety profile, is underutilized in ...
Post-operative length of stay (LOS) is an important metric for both healthcare providers and patients and their families. Predicting LOS is a challenge as it is sensitive to multitudinous patient and ...
Consecutive patients with high grade aortic stenosis undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) with a self-expanding valve (Medtronic CoreValve Evolut R® or Edwards Sapien ...
To prove the non-inferiority of TAVR-CMR compared to TAVR-CT to guide TAVR according to clinical efficacy, defined as implantation success based on the VARC-2 criteria.
The purpose of this study is to assess the incidence (at 90-days) of ventricular pacing in patients undergoing permanent pacemaker placement after TAVR. As well as incidence (at 90-days) ...
The high incidence and variety of conduction disturbances post-TAVR represents a major challenge in the periprocedural management of TAVR recipients. Despite the growing body of knowledge ...
The primary purpose of this this randomized interventional study is to determine if increased level of home-based rehabilitation coupled with a pre-TAVR consultation visit in transcatheter...
Signaling ligands that act in opposition to NODAL PROTEIN. During vertebrate development they regulate the degree of left-right asymmetry by controlling the spatiotemporal influence of NODAL PROTEIN.
The founding member of the nodal signaling ligand family of proteins. Nodal protein was originally discovered in the region of the mouse embryo primitive streak referred to as HENSEN'S NODE. It is expressed asymmetrically on the left side in chordates and plays a critical role in the genesis of left-right asymmetry during vertebrate development.
Test for cell-mediated antitumor immunity and related serum blocking factors based on the finding that leukocytes from cancer patients, but not from controls, when mixed in vitro with antigenic extracts of tumors of the same histological type, undergo a diminution in their normal adherence to glass surfaces. Sera from tumor-bearing patients block the LAI reaction of their own leukocytes or those of other patients with the same type of tumor.
The narrow tube connecting the YOLK SAC with the midgut of the EMBRYO; persistence of all or part of it in post-fetal life produces abnormalities, of which the commonest is MECKEL DIVERTICULUM.
Interruption of sympathetic pathways, by local injection of an anesthetic agent, at any of four levels: peripheral nerve block, sympathetic ganglion block, extradural block, and subarachnoid block.
