The introduction of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR in US - TAVI in Europe) has resulted in a paradigm shift in the treatment of patients with severe aortic stenosis. Although three randomized trials and multiple single-center and multicenter registry studies have been published, the profile and longer-term outcome of patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) in patients with severe aortic stenosis have been limited. The recently published reports from the United Kingdom (UK)1 and United States (US)2 TAVR registries add tremendously to the currently available literature. These studies provide an excellent model to clinicians that would aid in the proper patient selection and help in guiding discussions with patients who are undergoing TAVR. The present review discusses the recently published UK and US TAVR registry data.
