Evolut R

« Back to Glossary Index

A type of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) device manufactured by Medtronic. The Evolut R is designed to treat aortic stenosis, a condition in which the aortic valve narrows and restricts blood flow from the heart to the body. The device is delivered to the heart through a catheter and positioned within the damaged aortic valve, where it expands and replaces the diseased valve without the need for open-heart surgery. The Evolut R has received FDA approval and is commonly used in patients who are not suitable candidates for traditional surgical aortic valve replacement.
