  • NCDR-derived risk model to predict in-hospital stroke after TAVR

    Researchers have developed the first risk model to predict in-hospital stroke after transcatheter aortic valve replacement using data from the STS/ACC TVT Registry. The study, published in The Annals of Thoracic Surgery, provides a benchmark for the rate and relevant patient factors for in-hospital stroke post TAVR. Researchers conclude that the "model is a valuable resource for patient counseling, clinical decision making, quality improvement, and the development and implementation of risk-reduction strategies."
