Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement

CoreValve US Pivotal Trial High Risk Study


The CoreValve US Pivotal Trial applies clinical best practices—including CT-based sizing—and is meticulously monitored, including adjudication of pertinent adverse events by a Clinical Events Committee (CEC). Within the trial, the High Risk Study randomized 795 patients between surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) and TAVR with the CoreValve System across 45 US sites. The study results continue to set a standard in TAVR performance.


Superior Long-Term Clinical Outcomes

Lower Rate of Mortality or Stroke with CoreValve than with SAVR.

Superior Outcomes Chart

Unsurpassed Hemodynamic Performance

Supra-annular design optimizes orifice area, delivering low single digit gradients that are superior to SAVR at each follow-up visit.

Echocardiographic Findings*

CoreValve had significantly better valve performance over SAVR at all follow-up visits (P<0.001)
