Abstract

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has become the treatment option for symptomatic severe aortic stenosis patients across all risk profiles. Despite remarkable advancements in technology and operator experience, the occurrence of periprocedural stroke remains a significant concern, predominantly attributed to thromboembolic events in the immediate postprocedural period. To optimize patient outcomes, various strategies have been developed to minimize the risk of stroke, encompassing comprehensive preprocedural planning, effective management of comorbidities, utilization of cerebral embolic protection devices, and tailored medical therapy. This comprehensive review summarizes the currently available strategies for mitigating periprocedural stroke post-TAVR and provides insights into future directions.
