Incidence of New-Onset Atrial Fibrillation After TAVI

Evaluation of the Incidence of New-Onset Atrial Fibrillation After Aortic Valve Replacement
Findings:  In this population-based study, new-onset atrial fibrillation was present in roughly 50% of hospitalizations for transcatheter aortic valve implantation and aortic valve replacement. Hospitalizations with new-onset atrial fibrillation were associated with higher in-hospital mortality compared with transcatheter aortic valve implantation and aortic valve replacement hospitalizations without new-onset atrial fibrillation.

Meaning:  The high incidence of atrial fibrillation after transcatheter aortic valve implantation and aortic valve replacement should be discussed during the consent process and prompt shared patient-physician decision making regarding the potential need for anticoagulation after aortic valve procedures.
