WIN-TAVI registry highlights TAVR safety, performance in women

May 23, 2016

New data from the first all-female transcatheter aortic valve replacement registry reveal that most women were considered high risk, nearly three-quarters were aged older than 80 years, and the 30-day VARC-2 composite safety endpoint was 14%, with a low incidence of all-cause mortality and stroke.

The international, multicenter, prospective, observational WIN-TAVI registry was designed to analyze the safety and performance of contemporary TAVR procedures among women with aortic stenosis. The results were presented at EuroPCR and published in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions.
