Costs of postoperative delirium with transcatheter aortic valve replacement: Improved yet still present

Academic Article

Abstract

  • © 2019 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is associated with a lower risk of postoperative delirium (PD) than surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) in patients aged ≥80, based on billing codes. Postoperative delirium remains a frequent problem after both SAVR and TAVR in clinical series and is costly. Improved pre-procedural prediction of PD risk would improve targeting of clinical care and allow testing of preventative and management strategies.
