Key Findings

  • Confirmed long-term safety, clinical efficacy and valve performance of the ACURATE neo Transfemoral TAVI System in an all-comers, high-risk TAVI Population
  • Excellent procedural success, survival, and NYHA development
  • Minimal PVL and lowest new pacemaker rates in TAVI

Multicenter Propensity-Matched Comparison

Multicenter Comparison of Novel Self-Expanding Versus Balloon-Expandable Transcatheter Heart Valves:2

Study Design

ACURATE neo vs. SAPIEN 3

  • Observational, propensity-matched multicenter comparison of ACURATE neo and SAPIEN 3 from 3 high volume centers in Germany (DHZ Munich, UK Regensburg, Kerckhoff Klinikum Bad Nauheim)
  • 1,121 consecutive patients between Jan. 2014 and Jan. 2016 with symptomatic, severe stenosis of the native aortic valve treated with transfemoral TAVI using ACURATE neo (n = 311) or SAPIEN 3 (n = 810)
  • To increase statistical power, a 1-to-2 nearest neighbor matching was used to identify 2 control cases treated with SAPIEN 3 (n = 622) for each case treated with ACURATE neo (n = 311)
  • Endpoints: device failure and early safety composite endpoint at 30 days according to VARC-2 criteria

Key Findings

ACURATE neo and SAPIEN 3 show comparable VARC-2 procedural, performance and safety outcome

  • Comparable VARC-2 early safety composite endpoint (p=n.s.)
  • Comparable device failure composite endpoint (p=n.s.)

Safety and Performance Endpoints 

(% of patients)

ACURATE neo additionally shows lower rates of permanent pacemaker implantation and lower mean and less elevated transvalvular gradients, but slightly higher paravalvular leakage (PVL II+, 4.8% vs. 1.8%; p=0.01).

  • 54% reduced risk of elevated gradients
  • 36% reduced risk of new pacemaker implantations

Multicenter Comparison in Patients with Small Aortic Annulus

Outcome of Next‐Generation Transcatheter Valves in Small Aortic Annulus: A Multicenter Propensity‐Matched Comparison:3

Study Design

ACURATE neo vs. SAPIEN 3

Retrospective, 1:1 propensity‐matched multicenter comparison of ACURATE neo (n = 92) and SAPIEN 3 (n = 92) from 5 high volume centers in Germany

Key Findings

  • Similar performance for ACURATE neo and SAPIEN 3 with no significant differences at 30 days and 1 year in key safety outcomes
  • ACURATE neo showed
    • Lower mean transvalvular gradients
    • Larger indexed effective orifice areas (iEOA)
    • Lower rate of total Prosthesis‐Patient Mismatch (PPM)
  • The ongoing SCOPE I randomized study is expected to further confirm these data with first results expected H2‐18

Acute, 30 day & 1-year Outcome Summary

(% of patients unless otherwise stated)

  • ACURATE neo and SAPIEN 3 show comparable VARC‐2 procedural, performance and safety outcome and low, non‐statistically different mortality at 30 days and at 1 year
  • Both devices show comparable rates of new permanent pacemaker implantation and moderate PVL; no severe PVL was observed with both devices
  • ACURATE neo patients show significantly reduced risk of severe Patient‐Prosthesis mismatch and significantly lower Mean Gradients
  • Prosthesis‐patient mismatch is present when the effective orifice area of an implanted prosthetic valve is too small in relation to body size and has shown to be a strong predictor of short‐ and long‐term mortality and premature bioprosthetic degeneration4
