The SAVI-TF registry : 1-year outcomes of the European post-market registry using the ACURATE neo transcatheter heart valve under real-world conditions in 1,000 patients

  • Objectives: The SAVI-TF (Symetis ACURATE neo Valve Implantation Using Transfemoral Access) registry was initiated to study the ACURATE neo transcatheter heart valve in a large patient population treated under real-world conditions. Background: The self-expanding, supra-annular ACURATE neo prosthesis is a transcatheter heart valve that gained the Conformité Européene mark in 2014, but only limited clinical data are available so far. Methods: This prospective, multicenter registry enrolled 1,000 patients at 25 European centers who were followed for 1 year post-procedure. Results: Mean patient age was 81.1 ± 5.2 years; mean logistic European System for Cardiac Operative Risk Evaluation I score, European System for Cardiac Operative Risk Evaluation II score, and Society of Thoracic Surgeons score were 18.1 ± 12.5%, 6.6 ± 7.5%, and 6.0 ± 5.6%, respectively. At 1 year, 8.0% (95% confidence interval [CI]: 6.3% to 9.7%) of patients had died, 2.3% (95% CI: 1.3% to 3.2%) had disabling strokes, and 9.9% (95% CI: 8.1% to 11.8%) had permanent pacemaker implantations. Through 1 year, 5 reinterventions (0.5%; 95% CI: 0.1% to 1.0%) were performed: 3 valve-in-valve and 2 surgical aortic valve replacements. Mean effective orifice area was 1.84 ± 0.43 cm2, mean gradient was 7.3 ± 3.7 mm Hg, and greater than mild paravalvular leakage was observed in 3.6% of patients. Conclusions: Transfemoral implantation of the ACURATE neo prosthesis resulted in favorable 1-year clinical and echocardiographic outcomes with very low mortality and new pacemaker rates.
