TAVR Emerging As Next Big Application For Embolic Protection Devices

Executive Summary

Studies suggest transcatheter aortic valve replacement is associated with a higher stroke risk than standard surgical valve replacement, presumably due to embolic debris released during the TAVR procedure. To address this concern, several companies are developing TAVR-specific embolic protection devices, and their success may prove to be a key driver of future growth in this $1+ billion market.
