BACKGROUND: Patients with severe aortic stenosis who have comorbidities that prevent general anesthesia and open cardiothoracic surgery are candidates for transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). However, TAVI can result in patient mortality following the procedure. This systematic review of the literature and meta-analysis aimed to determine the relationship between preoperative anemia and postoperative mortality in patients following TAVI.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: PubMed, EMBASE, the Cochrane Library, and the Web of Science were systematically searched from their inception to February 2019 for relevant published studies that included patients with bicuspid aortic valve stenosis and tricuspid aortic valve stenosis who underwent TAVI and who had preoperative data on hemoglobin levels. The pooled odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence interval (CI) were calculated using a random-effects generic inverse variance method.
RESULTS: Six published studies that involved 6,406 patients with aortic stenosis were included in the meta-analysis. There was no significant difference observed for the final pooled result for patients with and without anemia for the short-term 30-day postoperative mortality (OR, 1.34; 95% CI, 0.77–2.35). However, long-term mortality rates were significantly worse in patients with preoperative anemia compared with those without anemia (OR, 1.77; 95% CI, 1.34–2.35).
CONCLUSIONS: Systematic review of the literature and meta-analysis showed that pre-procedural anemia reduced long-term mortality following TAVI. This finding supports the need to correct preoperative anemia in patients with aortic stenosis to improve patient outcome following TAVI.
