Abstract

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to demonstrate the first-in-human feasibility and short-term clinical outcomes with a new balloon-expandable transcatheter heart valve (THV).
BACKGROUND: The SAPIEN 3 (S3) THV incorporates a paravalvular sealing system, an active 3-dimensional coaxial positioning catheter, and is compatible with a 14-F expandable sheath.
METHODS: The S3 THV was implanted in 15 patients with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis via femoral arterial access. Multidetector computed tomography before and after valve implantation allowed assessment of a novel annular area sizing algorithm. Clinical and echocardiographic data were obtained at baseline, discharge, and 30 days.
RESULTS: All 15 device implants were successful. Multidetector computed tomography estimated an aortic annular area of 4.9 ± 0.4 cm(2), predicting 9.7 ± 6.9% THV oversizing. Post-transcatheter aortic valve replacement multidetector computed tomography showed consistently symmetrical and circular THVs. Aortic valve area increased from 0.7 ± 0.2 cm(2) to 1.5 ± 0.2 cm(2) (p < 0.001), and mean transaortic gradient decreased from 42.2 ± 10.3 mm Hg to 11.9 ± 5.3 mm Hg (p < 0.001). No patient had more than mild paravalvular aortic regurgitation. Hospital discharge occurred at a median of 3 (range 2 to 12) hospital days. At 30 days there were no deaths, strokes, vascular complications, bleeds, or transfusions, although 1 patient (6.7%) required a new pacemaker. All patients were in New York Heart Association functional class I or II.
CONCLUSIONS: The S3 THV and delivery system might facilitate fully percutaneous implantation in a broader range of patients with the potential for more accurate positioning and less paravalvular regurgitation.
