ACOR is looking forward to a big year ahead!
The execution of the Australian Transcatheter Valves Therapy Registry (ATVT) Agreement with SAHMRI will see the TAVI Registry converge from a singular Registry into a four-valve Registry. This has been over a year in the making, and we are very excited to see the projects and opportunities that come from the creation of this new Registry, including new databases that incorporate the mitral, pulmonary and tricuspid heart valves.
Currently, there are 52 TAVI sites, with two more onboarding and 17,685 cases (as of 23/10/2023) entered into the Registry since commencement (April 2018).
ACOR continues to seek funding opportunities and looks forward to an exciting year ahead.
