    Abstract

    Objectives: To assess the impact of introducing a transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) service on aortic valve surgical activity and outcomes. Design: A retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data. Setting: University hospital of south Manchester. Patients: 815 consecutive patients undergoing isolated aortic valve replacement (AVR) or coronary artery bypass grafting plus AVR from January 2006 to December 2009. Fifty consecutive patients who underwent TAVI from January 2008 to December 2009. Main outcome measures: Aortic valve surgical activity in the 2 years before the introduction of a TAVI service and in the 2 years following. Outcomes following conventional aortic valve surgery and TAVI. Results: In the 2 years following the introduction of TAVI at this centre, conventional AVR activity has increased by 37% compared with an 8% increase nationally (p
