Global AR Population
US Patients with Aortic Regurgitation (1)
Diagnosed Annually with Mod. / Severe AR (2)
Severe Symptomatic AR (ssAR) is Undertreated
of ssAR patients had SAVR within 1 year (2)
Severe Symptomatic Aortic Regurgitation is a Class I Recommendation for SAVR
ssAR w/o treatment
at 1 year has
2.7x Mortality rate
Earlier AR Treatment
2-4x higher mortality rate with 6-month delay for patients with LV dilatation
“To move the needle toward better outcome, our data suggest that AVR might be considered relatively early, before LVESDi >25 mm/m2 and when LVESDi progressively increases beyond 20 mm/m2.” 3
Aortic Regurgitation Management is Changing
Mirroring the trends of Mitral Regurgitation, aortic valve repair is being considered more frequently with Aortic Regurgitation. Advancements in aortic valve repair are enabling surgeons to repair more types of AI & expand the benefits of valve repair to more patients.
No Life-long Anticoagulation
Lower valve related complications
<<I will add in some bullets like this>>
in Valve Repair
Aortic Ring Annulplasty is a new valve repair options that is expanding the benefits of valve repair to more patients.
Internal annuloplasty approach, similar to mitral valve repair, stabilizes the annulus and avoids the need for total root replacement and coronary reimplantation.
Updated Guidelines & Earlier Treatment
Detecting the leak / Multimodality Imaging
New repair options
