New MISHC Publication on Cardiac Rehab Participation After TAVR in JACC: Advances

Elizabeth Horn

Data from MISHC and the Michigan Value Collaborative was recently published in JACC: Advances. “Predictors and Variation in Cardiac Rehabilitation Participation After Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement,” outlines results from a study revealing that just 30.6% of patients who underwent TAVR participated in cardiac rehabilitation within 90 days after discharge. This is despite cardiac rehab being found to increase quality of life and decrease mortality.
