A Tiny Incision is All We Need to Heal Your Ailing Heart
The home of next-generation TAVI and TMVR – effective and minimally invasive alternatives for patients unable to undergo open heart surgery.
What is Aortic Stenosis?
Aortic stenosis is the narrowing of the valve between the left ventricle and the aorta. This is often caused by the build-up of calcium (mineral deposits) on the aortic valve’s leaflets. When the valve cannot fully open, less oxygen-rich blood flows to the body.
This forces the heart to work harder to pump blood and eventually can lead to heart failure. The symptoms of aortic valve stenosis include chest pain, lightheadedness, dizziness, fatigue, and shortness of breath.
Causes of Aortic Valve Stenosis?
Rheumatic heart disease
What is TAVR?
This minimally invasive surgical procedure repairs the valve without opening the chest through arteries in your leg.
The surgery may be called a Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) or Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR). Somewhat similar to a stent placed in an artery, the TAVR approach delivers a fully collapsible replacement valve to the valve site through a catheter.
Once the new valve is expanded, it pushes the old valve leaflets out of the way and the tissue in the replacement valve takes over the job of regulating blood flow.
Types of TAVI Valves
Balloon Expandable Valve
Self Expading Valve
How is TAVI or TAVR different from the standard valve replacement?
TAVI and TMVR are novel, (US) FDA Approved, technically advanced, and minimally invasive procedures. suitable for people with symptomatic aortic stenosis who are even low-risk or do not have the fitness to undergo standard valve replacement surgery.
