Comparison of transcatheter, sutureless and conventional aortic valve replacement

Recent clinical trials have demonstrated that transcatheter and sutureless aortic valve replacement (AVR) are non-inferior to conventional AVR in high-risk patients; however, data comparing perioperative outcomes of the three techniques are lacking.

This summary reports the results of a Bayesian network analysis of seven randomised controlled trials and 25 propensity-matched studies comparing the techniques. Lloyd et al. investigated mortality, stroke, myocardial infarction, major bleeding, paravalvular regurgitation, acute kidney injury and pacemaker implantation, to determine which technique (if any) offered the best outcomes.
