How can TAVI benefit your low-risk patients with severe aortic stenosis (sAS) now and in the future?

Supported by proven results from PARTNER 3,1 low-risk patients with sAS now have the opportunity for TAVI. As these patients are usually younger and healthier than those in higher risk categories,1-6 further considerations for this group include valve durability and valve-in-valve (ViV) procedures that support their longer-term management.

Now you can give your low-risk AS patients a chance at the lowest-risk option

Low risk patients are younger and healthier and, for them, sAS is their primary concern

Low-risk patients are healthier1

Low-risk patients are younger1

Low-risk patients have fewer comorbidities

Only SAPIEN 3 TAVI was proven superior to surgery on the primary endpoints (all-cause death, all-stroke, or rehospitalisation)1, 7

PARTNER 3 Low-Risk Trial

Primary Endpoint: Baseline Death, Stroke or Rehospitalisation

Change from baseline in KCCQ-OS score at 1 month, 6 months and 1 year with SAPIEN 3 TAVI 4

Proven to be superior to surgery on primary end points in PARTNER 3, refer your low-risk patients with sAS for TAVI evaluation

Valve durability and future treatment options are a key consideration in low-risk patients with sAS and longer life expectancies8-10

Especially in younger and healthier AS patients, valve durability and future treatment options should be considered.

Keep your low-risk patients active with a TAVI that is supported by real-world durability data

No matter what their future brings, know they have the option of ViV TAVI

        The PARTNER 3 Trial proved SAPIEN 3 TAVI is superior to surgery for the primary endpoint and multiple pre-specified secondary endpoints.1
1 month = 16.0 points; 95% CI 14.2 to 17.8; p<0.001. 6 months = 2.6 points; 95% CI 1.0 to 4.3; p=0.002. 1 year = 1.8 points; 95% CI 0.1 to 3.5; p=0.033.4
45.9mmHg at baseline, 11.6mmHg at 1 Year, 11.6mmHg at 3 Years and 11.2mmHg at 5 Years. 11
1.3% vs 0.8% for TAVI and sAVR, respectively. Odds ratio 0.60 (95% CI, 0.22-1.65; p = 0.31)11
0.63% vs 0.60% for rate of Stage 2 & 3 for TAVI and sAVR, respectively; p = 0.86. Stage 2 & 3 HVD defined as: + Δ mean gradient ≥ 10 mmHg and -Δ AVA ≥ 0.3 cm² or ≥ 25%, -Δ DVI ≥ 0.1 or ≥ 20%, AND/OR ≥ 1 grade Δ transvalvular AR with final grade ≥ moderate.11
0.63% vs 0.37% for TAVI and sAVR, respectively; p = 0.22. Bioprosthetic valve failure defined as: Re-intervention or death related to valve dysfunction, or severe (Stage 3) structural valve deterioration-related HVD.11
