Method a systematic review was conducted from inception until may 2021 using PUBMED, Scopus, web of science and EMBASE databases.
Result data of costs, outcomes, incremental cost effectiveness ratio and willingness to pay were extracted. The overall quality of the studies ranged from moderate to high. Tavi was ASsociated with a significant gain in quality adjusted life years in almost all studies compared to either SAVR or MM.
Conclusions TAVI is a costly procedure ; therefore, justifying its cost effectiveness depends on the acceptable threshold in each country.
