Considerations for Implementing a Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation Service

An ECRI Institute Web Conference

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is a percutaneous procedure intended to provide a new treatment option for patients with severe aortic stenosis who are not candidates for open valve replacement surgery and do not qualify for other treatment options.

Severe aortic stenosis is a life-threatening, progressive disease that affects approximately 360,000 individuals—predominantly age 65 or older—in the U.S. Currently, the FDA-approved indications for the procedure include inoperable severe aortic stenosis and patients who are operable but at high risk for complications or death.

In "Considerations for Implementing a Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation Service," presenters from ECRI Institute discuss the wide-ranging issues the procedure presents to hospitals, and preview findings from their technology assessment of TAVI.
