Valve Science Center Research Published in JAMA Cardiology

MHIF Valve Science Center Researchers, Drs. Miho Fukui and Joao Cavalcante authored a recent paper published in JAMA Cardiology regarding TAVR outcomes in aortic stenosis patients. Read the full paper here

Dr. Cavalcante noted, “In this large cohort of TAVR patients, we have seen that classification of the extent of cardiac damage is strongly associated not only with mortality, but importantly cardiac and non-cardiac readmissions post-TAVR. It emphasizes the importance to identify upfront patients who might need a closer follow-up and additional therapies beyond TAVR.”

The research paper picked up attention on other online sites as well. View article links below:
