Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement: Volume and In-Hospital Mortality
2017 – 2021
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 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 in these procedures.

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement: Volume by Approach
2021, 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% of the 652 TAVR procedures performed in 2021.
