Edwards Sapien Aortic Valve: Transfemoral Approach

The Edwards SAPIEN XT transcatheter heart valve, model 9300TFX, and accessories are indicated for relief of aortic stenosis in patients with symptomatic heart disease due to severe native calcific aortic stenosis who are judged by a Heart Team, including a cardiac surgeon, to be at intermediate or greater risk for open surgical therapy (i.e., predicted risk of surgical mortality ≥ 3% at 30 days, based on the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) risk score and other clinical co-morbidities unmeasured by the STS risk calculator).

The Edwards SAPIEN 3 transcatheter heart valve, model 9600TFX, and accessories are indicated for relief of aortic stenosis in patients with symptomatic heart disease due to severe native calcific aortic stenosis who are judged by a Heart Team, including a cardiac surgeon, to be at intermediate or greater risk for open surgical therapy (i.e., predicted risk of surgical mortality ≥ 3% at 30 days, based on the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) risk score and other clinical co-morbidities unmeasured by the STS risk calculator).

Our case demonstrates the feasibility of using SAPIEN 3 in treating degenerated bioprosthetic mitral valves

The Edwards SAPIEN 3 transcatheter heart valve will be placed on the delivery system and compressed on a balloon. The delivery system carrying the valve will be placed through the sheath and delivered to your aortic valve. The balloon of the delivery system will be inflated, expanding the new valve within your diseased valve.

The Edwards SAPIEN XT transcatheter heart valve and accessories are also indicated for patients with symptomatic heart disease due to failure (stenosed, insufficient, or combined) of a surgical bioprosthetic aortic valve who are judged by a heart team, including a cardiac surgeon, to be at high or greater risk for open surgical therapy (i.e., STS operative risk score ≥8% or at a ≥15% risk of mortality at 30 days).

The Edwards SAPIEN 3 transcatheter heart valve, model 9600TFX, and accessories are indicated for relief of aortic stenosis in patients with symptomatic heart disease due to severe native calcific aortic stenosis who are judged by a Heart Team, including a cardiac surgeon, to be at intermediate or greater risk for open surgical therapy (i.e., predicted risk of surgical mortality ≥ 3% at 30 days, based on the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) risk score and other clinical co-morbidities unmeasured by the STS risk calculator).

Percutaneous aortic valve replacement ..

The long-term durability of the Edwards SAPIEN 3 transcatheter heart valve is not known, at this time. Regular medical follow-up is recommended to evaluate how well a patient’s heart valve is performing. For patients who have previously had aortic valve replacement, the safety, effectiveness, and durability of putting a transcatheter valve in an already implanted artificial valve are not known at this time.

Electrocardiographic conduction abnormalities following transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) with the Edwards-Sapien valve (ESV) are not uncommon and may be transient. We sought to examine the clinical time-course of conduction abnormalities after TAVR with ESV and determine risk factors for persistent abnormalities.
