Reuters Health - 14/01/2022 - Patients who undergo transcatheter pulmonary-valve replacement (TPVR) face similar odds of surviving and not needing reintervention or surgery as those who undergo surgical conduit or valve replacement, according to new findings. "The cumulative incidence of death and repeated intervention after TPVR is related to age at implant and is comparable to that in patients undergoing surgical pulmonary valve replacement," the authors write in Journal of the American College of Cardiology. To investigate mid- and long-term outcomes after TPVR, Dr. Doff B. McElhinney of Stanford University School of Medicine in Palo Alto, California, and his colleagues analyzed data from an international registry containing data on time-related outcomes after TPVR. The registry included 2,476 patients between 14 and 58 years of age who underwent TPVR and were followed up for 8,475 patient-years. After TPVR, 95 patients died, 24 from heart failure. Eight y...
