Abstract

This registry was set up to create a comprehensive record of all TAVI procedures performed in the United Kingdom since the introduction of the technique in 2007, to help drive quality improvement and provide data for research. Funding is independent of industry. All hospitals in the UK provide data for every consecutive patient where TAVI was attempted. The dataset includes variables defining patient demographic features, indications, procedural details and outcomes up to the time of hospital discharge. There are variables for follow up at 1 and 3 years assessing symptoms and life status. An updated dataset will be collected from 2013. Mortality is tracked centrally. Data entry is performed by clinical staff and data clerks. No external validation. The data are available for research by application to the UK TAVI Steering Group using a data sharing agreement which can be obtained at NICOR (www.ucl.ac.uk/nicor/).
