Aortic stenosis – The latest in TAVI and what this means for your patients

Listen to the episode

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
