Aortic Valve Replacement
TAVR is an alternative to surgery in patients with severe aortic stenosis. Procedural volume impacts mortality but little is known of its effect on length of stay (LOS) and readmissions. We sought to examine the impact of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) procedural volume on trends in LOS and hospital readmission rates from 2012 to 2016.
