PDF  


With periprocedural stroke risks reported between 2% and 4.5%, both TAVR and TEVAR are high-risk procedures for neurologic complications. The majority of clinically significant neurologic events are embolic in nature, and nearly all patients undergoing these procedures experience silent embolic events. Embolic protection devices strive to decrease the risk of both silent emboli and clinically significant neurologic events during TEVAR and TAVR.


KEY WORDS: Endovascular procedures - Transcatheter aortic valve replacement - Stroke - Embolic protection devices
