The Clinical Takeaway: Aortic Stenosis – The latest in TAVI and what this means for your patients

Description

In this episode:

 
– GPs need to auscultate every patient’s chest and investigate murmurs with an ECHO – only a minority of patients with treatable AS are being detected
– Severe AS has a very significant impact on quality of life and a very high mortality rate, but even moderate AS has a significant impact
– Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) has revolutionised treatment of AS
– There has been a recent update in intermediate risk private reimbursement that will make this procedure available to many more patients
