Brief Summary:

There are procedure related risk factors for permanent pacemaker implantation (PPI) that can be identified and assessed in a prospective cohort of 300 patients at high risk for PPI

Prospective, multicenter, European registry in patients at high risk for PPI undergoing TAVI with the Edwards SAPIEN 3 valve. Additional assessment of calcification using a CT data core lab. Statistical analysis of the dataset obtained with respect to the objectives of the registry.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Aortic Valve Stenosis AV Block Bundle-Branch Block Procedure: transcatheter valve implantation

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 300 participants
Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Edwards SAPIEN 3 PPI Registry - A Retrospective Survey and Prospective Identification of Procedure Related Variables Associated With Permanent Pacemaker Implantation in Patients Receiving an Edwards SAPIEN 3 Valve
Actual Study Start Date : December 1, 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date : June 2020
Estimated Study Completion Date : September 2020

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Patients with aortic stenosis
Patients receiving Edwards SAPIEN 3 aortic transcatheter valve Implantation, who are with a high risk for PPI
Procedure: transcatheter valve implantation
aortic transcatheter valve implantation using Edwards SAPIEN 3 valve

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Occurence of permanent pacemaker implantation after TAVI in high risk patients [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Need for permanent pacemaker implantation after TAVI in high risk patients.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Implantation depth [ Time Frame: up to 30 days after intervention ]
    Measurement in peri-interventional aortic angiograms. Mean implantation depth (% ventricular part of the stent frame)

  2. Valve sizing [ Time Frame: up to 30 days after intervention ]
    Measurement of aorta in pre‐operative contrast multislice computed tomographic Images, compared to the implanted valve sizing. Percentage of oversizing will be calculated using the formula (nominal prosthesis area/multislice computed tomographic area ‐ 1) x 100

  3. Dilatation [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Ratio in patients, who get a dilatation before or at intervention as well as thereafter (discharge, FU)

  4. Expiration data [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    cause of death

Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Patients undergoing transfemoral transcatheter valve implantation with the SAPIEN 3 valve with at least one identified risk factor for PPI

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients undergoing transfemoral SAPIEN 3 implantation because of aortic stenosis,
  • at least 1 of the identified risk factors from the retrospective part to ensure a minimum risk of 33% for PPI (presumed: pre‐existing conduction disturbance, aortic valve calcification, heavily calcified LVOT, RBBB, persistent complete heart blocks, QRS duration or short membranous septum,to be confirmed);

Exclusion Criteria:

  • exclusion of patients with prior pacemaker,
  • with indications for pacemaker implantation prior to TAVI
  • valve in valve implantation or
  • without informed consent
