The objective of this study was to report clinical outcomes and the impact of 30-day hypoattenuated leaflet thickening (HALT) on structural valve deterioration (SVD) 2 years after TAVR.Abstract: METHODS: The LRT trial was the first Food and Drug Administration-approved Investigational Device Exemption trial in the United States to evaluate the safety and feasibility of TAVR in low-risk patients with symptomatic severe tricuspid aortic stenosis (AS). Valve hemodynamics and SVD by echo were recorded 30 days, 1 year, and 2 years post-TAVR.Abstract: RESULTS: The LRT trial enrolled 200 low-risk patients to receive TAVR. Their mean age was 73.6 years and 61.5% were men. At 2-year follow-up, the mortality rate was 4.2%; the cardiovascular death rate was 1.6%. The disabling stroke rate was 1.1%, permanent pacemaker implantation rate was 8.6%, and 4 patients (2.2%) presented with endocarditis (2 between years 1 and 2). Of the 14% of TAVR subjects who had evidence of HALT at 30 days, there was no impact on valve hemodynamics, endocarditis or stroke at 2 years.Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: TAVR for low-risk patients with symptomatic severe tricuspid AS is safe at 2 years. The presence of HALT at 30 days did not impact the early hemodynamic improvements nor the durability of the valve structure. Copyright (c) 2021 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
