Brief Summary:
The study objectives are to assess the safety and efficacy of the CoreValve Evolut R transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) system in patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis are considered at high or extreme risk for surgical aortic valve replacement.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Aortic Stenosis Device: CoreValve Evolut R TAVR system Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

This objective will be accomplished by a prospective, single arm, historical controlled, multi-site study involving a minimum of 150 implanted subjects with no more than 250 implanted subjects at up to 25 study sites in the United States. Procedural and 30 day safety and efficacy results from this study will be compared to appropriate historical control data for the Medtronic CoreValve System. Subjects will be followed up to 5 years following implantation.

The enrollment phase of the study is estimated to take approximately 6-9 months. As each implanted subject is to be followed up to 5 years, the estimated study duration is approximately 66-69 months, excluding the time required for preparing the final report.
