Abstract

We report clinical outcomes following transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI), using the CoreValve revalving system (18 Fr transfemoral or subclavian) or the Edwards Sapien valve (22 Fr transfemoral or 24 Fr transapical) as part of a Belgian prospective non-randomized multicentre registry. All 15 Belgian centres performing TAVI participated to this registry (seven exclusively Edwards Sapien, eight exclusively CoreValve). All consecutive high-risk symptomatic patients with severe aortic stenosis were evaluated by a heart team and screened for eligibility for TAVI. Three hundred and twenty-eight patients underwent TAVI with CoreValve (n = 141; eight subclavian and 133 transfemoral) or Edwards Sapien (n = 187; 99 transfemoral and 88 transapical) up to April 2010. Procedural success was 97%. One-month survival was 88% for the Edwards and 89% for the CoreValve treated patients. One-month mortality was both related to cardiac and non-cardiac reasons. Overall one-year survival was 78% in the CoreValve transfemoral treated patients, 100% in the CoreValve subclavian treated patients, 82% in the Edwards transfemoral treated patients and 63% in the Edwards transapical treated patients. This mid-term mortality was mainly related to age-related, non-cardiac complications.
