Medtronic Evolut Deaths

My father-in-law died the same way except he went into cardiac arrest three times on the table. His surgeon also had issues with the deployment and placement of Evolut.

TAVR could be the future but it isn't close to where it needs to be to provide a safe patient experience. Make the device better and train your surgeons better. And stop paying to market trained surgeons because they are not all equal.

TAVR procedures are starting to be used on more low risk patients and the studies are impressive. The challenge has been surgeon training and companies like Medtronic and Edwards not selecting the right doctors to train.

As they were rolling TAVR out to more low risk patients, they should have focused on those surgeons who are excellent with the device in their hands. That didn't happen and that is why in private practice there were cases that didn't go well at first.

If TAVR is good enough for the legend Mick Jagger then TAVR is good enough for me.

The OP had a family member die a year ago because of complications from EVOLUT TAVR and now Medtronic is pushing to use the device on more low-risk patients, similar to the patient this poster said died because of EVOLUT?

Medtronic and Edwards better get ready for lawsuits when this same thing starts happening on a regular basis.

"Non surgical", huh? Is this really the type of marketing you encourage customers to use to attract patients?

Patients and their families should research Medicare Open Payments database before they're "consented" to see who's paying their doctors. MDT buys most of its business and there are industry types (doctors) who put money before patients. MDT is a well known pimp.
