Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement: Volume and In-Hospital Mortality
2018 – 2022
Since the start of the transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) program in 2006, Cleveland Clinic consistently achieves better-than-expected outcomes.
The in-hospital mortality rates for patients who had TAVR at Cleveland Clinic's Main Campus, Hillcrest Hospital and Fairview Hospital remain lower than the expected rate. Calculated observed to expected ratios remain less than the value of 1 indicating that Cleveland Clinic mortality is better than expected for these procedures.

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement: Volume by Approach
2022, N = 652
The majority of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) procedures done at Cleveland Clinic involve a transfemoral approach. This approach was used in 96.5% of the 652 TAVR procedures performed in 2022.
