TAVI QdV: Prospective Evaluation of the Quality of Life of Elderly Patients Undergoing Transfemoral Percutanous Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVI) for the Treatment of Severe Aortic Stenosis.
In order to overcome the shortcomings of the assessment questionnaires currently available on the assessment of overall quality of life, the "Toronto Aortic Stenosis Quality of Life Questionnaire" (TASQ) was developed as a specific assessment tool for the impact of severe aortic stenosis in elderly patients, through 16 questions covering 5 domains: symptoms and physical limitations, emotional impact and expectations following TAVI, as well as social limitations incurred.
A better knowledge and understanding of the clinical outcomes and quality of life of elderly patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis at 12 months of follow-up of a TAVI procedure would further optimize the clinical decision-making process and patient selection who will benefit the most from this intervention in the long term.
