SAPIEN 3 TAVI is proven superior* for low-surgical risk patients across outcomes that matter most to your low-risk patients1,2

TAVI offers many benefits that appeal to symptomatic severe aortic stenosis (AS) patients, independent of surgical risk

When you treat every symptomatic severe AS patient like family, you want them to have a better treatment experience. Help them discover the quality of life benefits from TAVI treatment and resume their everyday lives faster than surgery.1,2

In PARTNER 3 Trials, low-risk patients—and their families—spent less time in hospitals while recovering from the TAVI procedure.2,3

* The PARTNER 3 TRIAL, SAPIEN 3 TAVI proven superior to surgery on the primary endpoint all-cause death, all stroke, and rehabilitation and multiple pre-specified secondary endpoints.
Rehospitalization (valve-related or procedure-related and including heart failure).
** Excludes multiplicity adjustment.

Talking to your patients about the benefits of TAVI can alleviate hesitations about valve replacement
