In the United States, the average mortality of all patients undergoing this procedure is 4%.
Taking into account the patient's specific clinical condition, the statistical estimate that she might not survive the procedure is 2.4%.
This means that for every 100 patients having a similar clinical makeup, there would be 2.4 who did not survive.
The model provides an objective risk-adjusted estimate of in-hospital mortality which has real value for both patient and provider. It should be considered as one element in the evaluation process, to be considered along with the other traditional factors that determine whether the patient is an appropriate candidate for the procedure.
The STS/ACC TAVR In-Hospital Mortality Risk App is intended to be used by physicians at the point-of-care to evaluate a patient’s potential risk of death while in the acute care setting from the TAVR procedure.
How was this app developed?
The STS/ACC TAVR In-Hospital Mortality Risk App was developed at the ACC in collaboration with STS using the STS/ACC TVT Registry risk-adjusted mortality model. Development of the App was overseen by a group of clinical leaders and experts representing the target audience. Technical experts designed and built the App. Several rounds of user testing were conducted by physicians, nurse practitioners, and others with sample patients.
