Post-Discharge Risk of Heart Block
Recent studies have revealed the increasing awareness and concern with Heart Block after a
patient undergoes a TAVR procedure, contributing to a higher 30-day mortality.1 The research
shows delayed high-grade AV bock occurred in 10% of patients discharged after TAVR, and
some as late as 24 days. This patient population has been identified as an ideal candidate to
monitor to reduce the risks and implications of Heart Block.
