Observational Study to Evaluate Safety and Performance of SAPIEN 3 THV System in Real Life Practice. (SOURCE 3)

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT02698956
Recruitment Status : Active, not recruiting

Brief Summary:

This is an international, mutli-center, prospective, consecutively enrolled, observational registry. 2000 patients are planned to be enrolled over one year at up to 150 participating sites.

300 patients out of the 2000 patients enrolled in the main registry are planned to be consecutively enrolled in a select few sites for studying the valve performance. Echocardiogram and angiogram will be taken routinely.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Aortic Stenosis Device: TAVI (Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation)

Detailed Description:

The purpose of this registry is to provide clinical outcome and safety information on patients that will be treated with the Edwards SAPIEN 3 Transcatheter Heart Valve and delivery devices for severe, symptomatic calcific aortic stenosis. In addition, the information collected will serve post market safety and surveillance regulatory obligations.

Consecutive patient data will be collected at baseline, procedure, discharge, after discharge (at approx. 30 days post-index procedure), 12 months post-index procedure and annually thereafter up to 5 years post-implant according to usual practice at site.
