The Heart Valve Team at Sanford Health Fargo has been operational since 2012 and has been actively performing both TAVR and SAVR since that date. With over 500 TAVR implants, the Sanford Health Fargo program is one of the largest in the Midwest. The purpose of this proposal is to utilize this dataset to identify strengths, weaknesses and outcomes of TAVR by retrospectively analyzing previously acquired clinical, laboratory and imaging data from this patient population.

This proposal is for a retrospective, chart-review study investigating clinical outcomes after TAVR and SAVR. Patients who have undergone TAVR or SAVR at Sanford Health Fargo since 2012 to July 1 2018 will be eligible for review. Data will be sourced from the electronic medical record (EMR) and imaging (CT, Echo, Cath Lab) sources and a patient de-identified dataset created for analysis. Areas of interest for study include:

  1. Procedural mortality and medium term survival.

  2. Morbidity after TAVR.

  3. Changes if left ventricular mass regression after TAVR.

  4. Changes of aortic valve pressure gradients with time.

  5. Effect of anticoagulation on TAVR valve function.

  6. Optimal medical therapy after TAVR
