16:08 EDTBSXBoston Scientific says REPRISE II data show sustained safety, performance
New data from the Boston Scientific clinical trial program of the LotusValve System continue to demonstrate strong performance as a less invasive treatment for patients with severe aortic stenosis who are considered high risk for surgical valve replacement. Data from the REPRISE II clinical trial confirmed safety and effectiveness out to one year, with more than 86% of patients exhibiting a complete absence of paravalvular aortic regurgitation and no patients demonstrating moderate or severe paravalvular aortic regurgitation. New data from the REPRISE I and REPRISE II clinical trials were presented at the 26th Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics meeting, the annual scientific symposium of the Cardiovascular Research Foundation. REPRISE II is an ongoing prospective, single-arm, multi-center study designed to evaluate safety and performance of the Lotus Valve System for symptomatic patients with severe calcific aortic stenosis who are considered high risk for surgical valve replacement. The study enrolled 120 patients at 14 sites in Australia, France, Germany and the UK. In REPRISE II, key one-year results include the following: Mean aortic valve pressure gradient remained low and stable at 12.6 + 5.7 mmHg. More than 86% of patients had no paravalvular aortic regurgitation by independent core lab assessment. In addition, no cases of moderate or severe paravalvular aortic regurgitation occurred. Mild and trace paravalvular aortic regurgitation rates were low at 11.4 and 2.3%, respectively. Cardiovascular mortality rate was 6.7%. Disabling stroke rate was 3.4%. No cases of non-study valve implantation, unplanned use of cardiopulmonary bypass, valve embolization, valve-in-valve or ectopic valve placement occurred.

07:04 EDTCOVCovidien announces start of enrollment in two neurovascular trials
Covidien announced the start of enrollment in two clinical trials designed to further underscore the safety and effectiveness of the company’s advanced neurovascular solutions. Baptist Medical Center in Jacksonville, Florida, treated the first patient enrolled in the PREMIER Prospective study, an international Investigational Device Exemption clinical study to evaluate the Pipeline embolization device in smaller unruptured intracranial aneurysms. Separately, Baptist Health Lexington in Kentucky, enrolled the first patient in the STRATIS Registry for Endovascular Stroke Devices, which will evaluate the use of all Covidien market-released stroke devices. The PREMIER study will enroll up to 141 patients in 20 global sites and is designed to assess the safety and effectiveness of the Pipeline device in the treatment of unruptured, small and medium wide-necked intracranial aneurysms. The STRATIS Registry, a prospective, multi-center, non-randomized, observational registry designed to evaluate the use of Covidien endovascular stroke devices in patients diagnosed with an acute ischemic stroke. Covidien’s current endovascular stroke device in the U.S. is the Solitaire™ 2 revascularization device. As many as 60 U.S. sites are expected to participate in the STRATIS Registry, which will enroll up to 1,000 patients to collect clinical outcomes for interventional stroke patients in a real world setting.

13:18 EDTEWEdwards Lifesciences presents five-year clinical outcomes of PARTNER trial
Edwards Lifesciences announced the presentation of five-year clinical outcomes for inoperable patients treated in The PARTNER Trial, the world's only prospective randomized trial for transcatheter aortic valve replacement, TAVR, in patients deemed too sick for open-heart surgery. The data were presented as part of the late-breaking clinical trials session at the 26th Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics, TCT, the annual scientific symposium of the Cardiovascular Research Foundation."These longer term results from PARTNER's inoperable cohort indicated that TAVR was associated with a continued significant mortality benefit, persistent symptom benefit and a statistically significant reduction in rehospitalizations," said Michael J. Mack, M.D., chair, cardiovascular service line, Baylor Scott & White Health. "It is reassuring now five years later that in this very ill and elderly patient group facing a high likelihood of mortality, more patients treated with SAPIEN experienced sustained improvements in functional heart status and fewer repeat hospitalizations – two measures that signify an improvement in quality of life." "This was the first study of its kind for transcatheter heart valves," said Mack. "The PARTNER Trial has historical significance in the development of TAVR and continues to provide the clinical community with important information about the durability and performance of the Edwards SAPIEN valves."
