Background Only limited and conflicting data on the impact of preoperative chronic kidney disease (CKD) on outcomes after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) are available. Methods We retrospectively analyzed pooled data from the prospective TAVI databases of 4 centers (942 patients). Valve Academic Research Consortium end point definitions were used. The outcomes were compared among patients with normal estimated glomerular filtration rate (>= 90 mL/min), mild (60-89 mL/min), moderate (30-59 mL/min), and severe (<30 mL/min) CKD and those on chronic hemodialysis (HD). The primary end point was 1-year survival. Results A total of 109 patients had a normal estimated glomerular filtration rate (11.6%); 329 (34.9%) had mild, 399 (42.5%) moderate, 72 (7.5%) severe CKD, and 33 (3.5%) were on HD. Baseline and procedural characteristics were similar among all groups except for Logistic EuroSCORE. Major stroke, life-threatening bleeding, all-cause 30-day mortality (HD 15.2%, severe CKD 8.3%, moderate CKD 8.3%, mild CKD 6.7%, normal 1.8%, P = .007) and 1-year survival (HD 54.8%, severe CKD 67.2%, moderate CKD 8 Conclusions Patients with CKD who undergo TAVI have a higher-risk profile and worse 30-day and 1-year outcomes. Chronic hemodialysis and severe preprocedural CKD are independently associated with an increased risk of 1-year mortality after TAVI. (Am Heart J 2013;165:752-60.)
