Evolving landscape in aortic stenosis
Diagnosing Aortic Stenosis patients
It can be challenging confirming the AS severity and finding the optimal time to refer for further treatment.
2021 ESC/EACTS Treatment Guidelines
Explore the latest updates in aortic stenosis management and see the impact this may have on your referral decisions.
Sustained durability of TAVI
Current durability evidence for TAVI valves supports the ESC/EACTS recommendation: TF-TAVI as preferred mode of intervention in patients ≥75 years of age**, as well as for additional patient groups < 75 years of age1
**Based on evaluation of clinical, anatomical and procedural factors
Mean Aortic Valve Gradient, PARTNER II A2†
TAVI has shown similar outcomes to surgery (SAVR) across key durability parameters:
- With up to 5 years follow-up data of SAPIEN 3 TAVI versus SAVR2
- Up to 10 years of evidence from Real-World observational studies3
Age has become a key factor in determining if a TAVI procedure is relevant for each AS patient. Find out more about the clinical evidence.

†Violin plots have become the new standard for representing echocardiographic data. Like box plots they show the distribution of the data, with the addition of the density of the data at different values.4
