Abstract


The National Ministry of Health and Social Development published the “Transcatheter aortic valve implantation in severe aortic stenosis” document developed by the National Board of Health Technology Assessment [Comisión de Evaluación de Tecnología de Salud (CONETEC)]. In its conclusion, it declares that transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) should be reserved for inoperable patients, and does not recommend it for high, moderate or low-risk patients, based on not sufficiently strong scientific evidence (both in the quality and magnitude of the benefit) for this recommendation.
