Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Vancouver 3M Clinical Pathway
The Vancouver 3M Clinical Pathway utilizes objective anatomical and functional screening criteria as well as strict peri-procedural guidelines to determine if next day discharge home is appropriate.
Other: Vancouver 3M Clinical Pathway

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The composite of all-cause mortality or stroke [ Time Frame: 30 days post-procedure ]
  2. The proportion of patients undergoing elective transfemoral TAVR using the Vancouver 3M Clinical Pathway, who are discharged the next day [ Time Frame: Next day ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. All-cause mortality [ Time Frame: 30 days post-procedure ]
  2. Stroke [ Time Frame: 30 days post-procedure ]
  3. 30-day major vascular complications [ Time Frame: 30 days post-procedure ]
  4. 30-day major/life-threatening bleed [ Time Frame: 30 days post-procedure ]
  5. Any readmission to hospital within 30 days [ Time Frame: 30 days post-procedure ]
  6. > mild paravalvular regurgitation [ Time Frame: Post-procedure/discharge ]
  7. New permanent pacemaker [ Time Frame: 30 days post-procedure ]
  8. Conversion to general anesthetic/intubation [ Time Frame: Peri-procedure ]
  9. Myocardial infarction [ Time Frame: Peri-procedure ]
  10. Repeat procedure for valve-related dysfunction [ Time Frame: 30 days post-procedure ]
  11. Stage 3 acute kidney injury (need for dialysis) [ Time Frame: 30 days post-procedure ]
  12. Patient-centred outcomes including health related quality of life as measured by KCCQ and SF-12 at baseline, 2 weeks, 30 days, and 1 year [ Time Frame: Baseline, and 2 weeks, 30 day and 1 year post procedure ]
  13. Economic evaluation including health resource utilization, and cost effectiveness [ Time Frame: Peri- and post-procedure ]
  14. Death or stroke at one year [ Time Frame: 1 year post-procedure ]

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   Child, Adult, Older Adult
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

Patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis undergoing elective transfemoral TAVR with a balloon expandable transcatheter heart valve

  1. Considered at increased surgical risk by the Multidisciplinary Heart Team.
  2. Informed written consent

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Non -cardiovascular co-morbidity reducing life expectancy to < 3 years
  2. Any factor precluding 1 year follow-up
  3. Inadequate CT image acquisition to perform area-based annular CT sizing, exclude adverse root features, and determine a coaxial valve deployment angle (CT is not required for valve-in-valve procedures)
  4. Predicted inability to perform uncomplicated percutaneous vascular access and closure
  5. Iliofemoral diameter < 6 mm for SAPIEN XT or <5.5 mm for SAPIEN 3 (measured at or above the mid-femoral head)
  6. Inpatient (unless clinically stable, mobilizing at baseline, and primarily in hospital for logistical reasons.
  7. Significant communication barrier(s) that interfere with ability to follow peri-procedural and discharge instructions
  8. MMSE < 24/30 (unless language barrier or limited formal education), 5-metre gait > 7 seconds (unless chronic mobility impairment not affecting ability to perform ADLs), and ADL < 6/6
  9. Insufficient social support to facilitate next day discharge
  10. Airway unfavourable for emergent intubation
  11. Inability to lay supine without conscious sedation or general anesthetic
  12. Not receiving a balloon expandable transcatheter heart valve
