Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement in Low Risk Patients

The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that the safety and effectiveness of the Medtronic Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) system as measured by rates of all-cause mortality or disabling stroke at two years is non-inferior to Surgical Aortic Valve Replacement (SAVR) in the treatment of severe aortic stenosis in subjects who have a low predicted risk of operative mortality for SAVR.

This research study is led by Dr. Ashequl Islam.
