Outcomes Worse in Patients with Persistent Conduction Abnormalities after TAVR
Recent advances in TAVR have enabled lower-risk patients to benefit from this therapy. However, post-TAVR complications with the heart’s electrical impulses, known as conduction abnormalities, continue to undermine the next generation of valve repair devices.
