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.
