Plus–minus values are means ±SD.The body-mass index is the weight in kilograms divided by the square of the height in metres.Scoring on the risk model of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) uses an algorithm that is based on the presence of coexisting illnesses in order to predict 30-day operative mortality. The STS score equals the predicted mortality expressed as a percentage. Less than 5% of patients in the population on which the STS algorithm is based had a predicted operative mortality (risk score) of more than 10%. Data on this score were missing for one patient. To convert values for creatinine to micromoles per litre, multiply by 88.4.
SAPIEN 3 TAVI demonstrated superiority to sAVR in the composite of all-cause mortality, stroke, or rehospitalisation one year. This occurred in 42 patients (8.5%) in the SAPIEN 3 TAVI group versus 68 patients (15.1%) in the sAVR group1
Primary endpoint : all-cause mortality, all stroke or rehospitalisation at one year 1
The prolonged follow-up, to 2 years, continues to show a statistical benefit in favour of SAPIEN 3 TAVI compared to sAVR.2
The TAVI group enjoyed a better health status at 1, 6 and 12 months after the procedure compared to the sAVR group, as measured using the KCCQ-OS (Kansas City Cardiomyopathy Questionnaire – Overall Summary)3
