Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a less invasive procedure than open heart surgery, optimal for those who have been diagnosed with fatal symptomatic aortic stenosis. This minimally invasive surgical procedure repairs the valve without removing the old damaged valve. Instead, it wedges a replacement valve into the aortic valves place.
What is transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR)?
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a procedure for patients with severe and symptomatic aortic stenosis (narrowing of the aortic valve opening). TAVR is performed on a beating heart and does not require cardio-pulmonary bypass.
