PROVE ACURATE neo2™ – Post Market Safety and Performance Surveillance in Aortic Stenosis


Report Abuse


Aortic valve sclerosis (aortic valve thickening and calcification without pressure gradient) is one of the most common valvular abnormalities in the Western world. Per year, about 1.8-1.9% of these patients develop aortic valve stenosis which will eventually be treated by TAVI (Transcatheter aortic valve implantation).

The purpose of this study is to collect and monitor ongoing safety and performance clinical data of the ACURATE neo2™ aortic bioprosthesis and the ACURATE neo2™ transfemoral delivery system, hereafter referred to as the ACURATE neo2™ and transfemoral delivery system in the context of an observational investigator initiated trial (IIT).

Study Population
Patients will be recruited from primary care clinics. As the ACURATE neo2™ is approved for use to treat patients with severe aortic stenosis, the inclusion criteria are broad in order to allow the device to be used in an all-comers population and following the instructions for use (IFU).
Minimum Age (years)
Eligibility Criteria
Inclusion Criteria:

Planned transcatheter treatment of severe aortic stenosis with the ACURATE neo2™ aortic bioprosthesis and ACURATE neo2™ transfemoral delivery system.
Age ≥ 18 years of age
Written informed consent by patient and/or legal representative

Exclusion Criteria:

Patient is unlikely to be able or willing to follow the investigator's instructions during study participation.
Patients temporally unable to provide written informed consent (e. g. unconscious emergency patients)
3. Patients placed in an institution by official or court order

Detailed Description
There are four leading causes of valvular aortic valve stenosis, namely: calcific aortic stenosis, congenital aortic valve malformations, rheumatic aortic valve stenosis, and endocarditis. Calcific aortic valve stenosis is a chronic progressive disease, and the predominant cause of aortic valve stenosis in the Western world. Multiple mechanisms influencing the progression of aortic valve stenosis have been identified. However, there is still no sufficient drug therapy to stop or reverse the process.

If high-grade aortic valve stenosis becomes symptomatic, death rates increase up to 50% in 2 years.Many patients with severe and symptomatic aortic stenosis are successfully treated with surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR), which can reduce symptoms and improve survival. However, up to one-third of symptomatic patients are considered inoperable due to comorbidities and the high risk of surgery. This treatment gap forced the development of less invasive approaches for patients with aortic stenosis considered inoperable and led to the development of TAVI. Later, TAVI has also been considered in the European Society of Cardiology/European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery (ESC/EACTS) 2017 and American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology (AHA/ACC) guidelines for the management of patients with valvular heart disease and intermediate surgical risk and recently, new landmark studies have expanded the use of TAVI into the low surgical risk field.

For the establishment of TAVI as the first line treatment option in lower risk patients, further improvement with regard to adverse outcomes associated with TAVI (e.g. vascular complications, rates of paravalvular leak/aortic regurgitation and the need for permanent pacemakers) will be essential. Therefore, large registries are needed to detect rare events and tendencies in a real-world setting.

The PROVE study will collect baseline, procedural and follow-up data. In addition, it will serve as an imaging library (angiography, echocardiography and cardiac computed tomography) to evaluate the potential advantages and disadvantages of the ACURATE neo2.
