AorticStenosisTrials: Aortic Stenosis RCT data

Description Usage Format Note References


Data from 5 randomized controlled trials of transcatheter aortic valve replacement vs surgery in patients with Aortic Stenosis. The outcome is time until death from any cause. For each RCT, we reconstructed the individual patient data for each randomization group. We first extracted the time and survival probability coordinates from the Kaplan-Meier curves using the DigitizeIt software ( We used these coordinates, the total numbers of events, and the numbers of participants at risk to determine individual event times and event indicators.
