Conclusions: The affiliation between a VAMC and an academic medical center allowed for direct comparison between veterans and non-veterans undergoing TAVR by the same operators using the TVT registry.

This may be in part due to the comprehensive care that veterans receive in the VAMC and this institution's integrated heart center team.
