Structural Heart Program Highlights

Structural Heart
McLaren Greater Lansing maintains a high-volume structural heart program that includes TAVR, MitraClip, and Watchman procedures.

TAVR
According to the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) and American College of Cardiology (ACC) TVT Registry, volumes for TAVR have increased every year since its approval in 2011. In 2019, TAVR exceeded all forms of surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) for the first time. This coincides with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s approval of TAVR for low-risk patients. The median length of stay for patients has declined from seven days to two days for all patients over the course of the report. For patients assessed as low-risk, the median length of stay in 2019 was only one day (an overnight hospital stay).

WATCHMAN
The WATCHMAN device is an advanced, minimally invasive procedure for patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation who are at high risk for stroke but are no longer able to take a long-term anticoagulant (due to prior bleeding on anticoagulation or inability to regulate warfarin levels). Current data shows the implant reduces the risk of debilitating and fatal strokes by 55 percent, and major bleeding six months post-implant by 72 percent.

  • Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG)
