Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)

TAVR is a minimally invasive, life-saving procedure for patients with aortic stenosis who are considered too high risk for traditional open heart surgery.

Aortic stenosis affects the aortic valve. In late stages of the disease, the valve does not properly open and close, causing the heart to work harder to push blood through the calcified aortic valve. Eventually, the heart weakens, increasing the patient’s risk of heart failure and death.
