    Abbott announces study shows Portico transcatheter aortic valve is safe, reduces severe aortic stenosis
    Abbott (Abbott Park, IL) announced treatment with the company's Portico transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) therapy was associated with excellent clinical outcomes at 30 days, including low rates of death, disabling stroke, and paravalvular leak. Additional benefits observed included reduction in New York Heart Association (NYHA) class severity, low rates of bleeding, and improvements in a six-minute walk test, allowing patients to return to their previous lifestyles and activity faster. Data from the PORTICO I study were presented during EuroPCR, the annual meeting of the European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EAPCI), and showed favorable short-term clinical outcomes for safety and performance – consistent with the Portico CE Mark study results that granted European regulatory approval.
