BACKGROUND: There is a paucity of data regarding the outcomes of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) versus surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) among solid-organ transplant recipients.
METHODS: Temporal trends in hospitalizations for aortic valve replacement among solid-organ transplant recipients were determined using the National Inpatient Sample database years 2012-2017. Propensity matching was conducted to compare admissions who underwent TAVR versus SAVR. The primary outcome was in-hospital mortality.
RESULTS: The analysis included 1,730 hospitalizations for isolated AVR; 920 (53.2%) underwent TAVR and 810 (46.7%) underwent SAVR. TAVR was increasingly utilized for solid-organ transplant recipients (P
CONCLUSION: This contemporary observational nationwide analysis showed that TAVR is increasingly performed among solid-organ transplant recipients. Compared with SAVR, TAVR was associated with lower in-hospital mortality, complications, and shorter length of stay.
