OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine how the anesthestic approach to transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) differs in North America and Europe. DESIGN: The study was a nonrandomized survey of 82 institutions in North America and Europe performing TAVR procedures. SETTING: This was an international multi-institutional survey of medical centers performing TAVR in North America and Europe. PARTICIPANTS: Anesthesiologists. INTERVENTIONS: Participant anesthesiologists from 82 institutions contacted were asked by telephone and e-mail to describe their anesthetic approach to TAVRs. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: The major finding of interest was if general anesthesia or sedation was used for TAVR cases. CONCLUSIONS: General anesthesia is the predominant practice in North America and only 5% use sedation for TAVR cases, whereas sedation is more common in Europe.
