Aortic
Stenosis

CARDIOLOGY SOLUTIONS

Among symptomatic patients with medically treated moderate-to-severe aortic stenosis, mortality from the onset of symptoms is approximately 25 percent at one year and 50 percent at two years.1 GE Healthcare's Cardiology Solutions help you make decisions that matter for your patients, staff and hospital.

The Patient Journey

EARLY DETECTION
Due to the high mortality rates by the time patients are symptomatic, it is important to identify patients at risk, even when they are asymptomatic. Echocardiography can identify issues or abnormalities related to Aortic Valve structure and function.
DIAGNOSIS
Diagnosis involves assessment of valve morphology, amount of stenosis or insufficiency, LV function, LV hypertrophy, and severity of symptoms. For patients with Aortic Stenosis, there are surgical and catheterization treatment options in addition to medical or palliative care. A risk calculator is typically used to quantify the risk and make a treatment decision.
PRE-PROCEDURE PLANNING
For patients choosing a transcatheter replacement, non-invasive cardiovascular imaging, such as Ultrasound, CT, and MR are typically used to assess anatomy to plan the access site and size the valve.
INTERVENTION
During the transcatheter aortic valve replacement, steps are taken to ensure the most effective result, including valve sizing, position, and function are optimal.
PATIENT FOLLOW-UP
After the procedure, care is taken to ensure functionality of the valve typically using non-invasive imaging and ECG.
DIGITAL FOUNDATION AND INNOVATIONS
Digital solutions, analytics and AI innovations such as GE Healthcare's Edison Platform, Muse and Centricity Cardio Enterprise connect our wing-to-wing technologies to practitioners for better cardiology outcomes, more efficiently.
