Emerging evidence has investigated various antithrombotic strategies including single antiplatelet therapy (SAPT) versus DAPT, anticoagulation with or without clopidogrel, and rivaroxaban plus aspirin versus DAPT. Join Dr. Allison Wicker as she assesses the available literature to develop an evidence-based recommendation on the optimal antithrombotic regimen following transcatheter aortic valve replacement.

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is an established treatment option in patients with severe aortic stenosis. Current practice guidelines provide weak recommendations regarding the potential antithrombotic options post-TAVR, and the risks of thromboembolic and bleeding complications associated with this procedure render the optimal antithrombotic regimen unclear. With the FDA indication for TAVR extended to low risk surgical patients in August 2019, selection of therapy has become even more critical. This program will address emerging evidence regarding the optimal antithrombotic regimens for patients both with and without indications for long-term anticoagulation.
- List the current guideline recommendations regarding antithrombotic therapy after transcatheter aortic valve replacement
- Summarize emerging data regarding antithrombotic strategies post transcatheter aortic valve replacement
