CAUTION: The ProtEmbo® Cerebral Protection System is approved for investigational use in Europe.
Cerebrovascular Events During TAVR Cerebrovascular events occur in nearly all transcatheter aortic valve replacements (i.e.TAVR). These are associated with cognitive decline, 2- to 4-fold risk of future stroke, more than 3-fold risk of mortality, and more than 2-fold risk of dementia. Clinical cerebrovascular event rates as high as 9.1% have been reported following TAVR.
