When I talked to the nurse today, she mentioned AFIB as a possible cause of my recent high heart rate. I did a search for AFIB after TAVR and found this study from 2018. The study was of patients between 2011 and 2015, so are likely 1st generation TAVR valves and most were likely high risk patients.

"Patients developing AFib after TAVR are at higher risk of death, stroke and heart attack compared to patients who already had AFib prior to the procedure, according to a study today in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions. The paper is the first nationwide examination of patients who developed AFib for the first time following TAVR. "
