You can feel confident that TAVR is an established treatment for symptomatic severe aortic stenosis1

TAVR is an established treatment option, with more than 450,000 transcatheter aortic valves implanted.2-4. In fact, based on the TVT registry, the number of TAVR procedures has surpassed the number of SAVR procedures in the US in the last 5 years.1

TAVR with the Edwards SAPIEN 3 valve is shown to be safe and reproducible in real-world settings5
