Several clinical and procedural factors determine outcomes after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), but data are scarce on the impact of post-TAVR discharge disposition on long-term outcomes. The Authors, – using the informations on discharge from the Women's INternational Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (WIN-TAVI) registry (the first all-female TAVR registry to study the safety and performance of contemporary TAVR in women), – sought to analyse whether discharge location after TAVR is associated with 1-year outcomes in women undergoing contemporary TAVR.

They concluded that, In women undergoing contemporary TAVR, discharge disposition significantly affects 1-year risk of outcomes even after adjustment for recorded baseline differences. This might suggest the necessity of considering additional factors beyond comorbidities in the TAVR decision-making process.
