Effectivity & patient outcomes of tavr by Dr Rajneesh Kapoor published by TOI, HT & national news media.


Hindustan Times, Times of India, Financial World, Dainik Jagran, Punjab Kesari & and likewise major Indian newspapers have published reports on the effectiveness & patient outcomes of transcatheter aortic valve replacement, performed by one of the best specialists for tavr in India, Dr. Rajneesh Kapoor, the chairman of interventional cardiology at Medanta The Medicity Gurugram. 

The report says that according to Dr Rajneesh Kapoor, “TAVR has consistently demonstrated high success rates in treating aortic valve stenosis. According to studies and clinical trials, the procedural success rate for TAVR exceeds 95%. This high success rate can be attributed to the advancements in TAVR technology, including improved valve designs, enhanced imaging, and refined delivery systems."

Dr. Rajneesh Kapoor mentioned that Patients who undergo TAVR experience significant improvements in symptoms associated with aortic valve stenosis. Shortness of breath, fatigue, and chest pain, which are common symptoms of the condition, are alleviated after the procedure. Restoring proper blood flow and improving heart function through TAVR leads to an improved quality of life for patients.

On TAVR-associated mortality rates, he says TAVR has been associated with lower mortality rates compared to traditional open-heart surgery, especially in high-risk patients. Studies have consistently shown that TAVR is non-inferior to surgery in terms of mortality rates, and in some cases, TAVR has demonstrated superior outcomes. This lower mortality rate is attributed to the minimally invasive nature of the procedure and the reduced risk of complications.

He says that One of the advantages of TAVR is its potential to reduce hospital stays compared to open-heart surgery. The shorter hospitalization period allows patients to recover in the comfort of their own homes sooner. This not only improves patient satisfaction but also reduces healthcare costs associated with prolonged hospital stays. He said TAVR has been shown to have fewer post-procedural complications compared to traditional open-heart surgery. The reduced risk of infection, bleeding, and other surgical complications contributes to a smoother recovery process for patients. Additionally, the lower incidence of complications minimizes the need for additional interventions, resulting in improved patient outcomes.
