Virtual Reality Assisted Conscious Sedation During TAVI


Brief description of study

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is an established therapy for patients with severe aortic valve stenosis. Pain and anxiety are major contributors to procedural complications. Virtual Reality (VR) glasses have already been used successfully in different clinical settings to treat anxiety and delirium. The aim of this prospective, randomized investigation is to prove the feasibility and safety of VR interventions in patients undergoing conscious sedation during TAVI with local anesthesia only.
