Abstract

Stroke leads to significant morbidity, disability, and mortality after TAVR. CKD and prior stroke are risk factors for stroke. Stratification of stroke risk would improve outcomes associated with TAVR. Ongoing prospective randomized trials on embolic protection and post implant anticoagulation are promising strategies to reduce stroke risk and new brain MRI lesions.
