New Best Practice Protocol - Nephropathy Post-TAVR
The new best practice protocol (BPP) for nephropathy post-TAVR is now available on mishc.org. Nephropathy after TAVR is associated with increased mortality in MISHC data and in peer-reviewed literature. This BPP includes an outline of predictors of nephropathy post-TAVR in MISHC data as well as VARC2 and BMC2 definitions of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI). A hydration protocol for TAVR and information on contrast limits for TAVR are also included. You can view the complete BPP on our website. Thank you to our Best Practice Protocol Task Force for creating this document.
