Abstract

This study demonstrated an increasing rate in complete heart block (CHB) and permanent pacemaker (PPM) after trans-catheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). The development of CHB was associated with increased in-hospital mortality, prolonged length of stay and augmented hospitalization cost. Pre-existing RBBB was the strongest independent risk factor for subsequent development of CHB after TAVR.
