Transcatheter Aortic Valve replacement (TAVR)

« Back to Glossary Index

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat aortic stenosis, a condition in which the aortic valve narrows and restricts blood flow from the heart to the rest of the body. In TAVR, a replacement valve is delivered to the heart through a catheter and is positioned inside the diseased aortic valve, expanding to replace it. The procedure is performed using a specialized delivery system and does not require open-heart surgery, making it a less invasive alternative for patients who may not be candidates for traditional valve replacement surgery. TAVR has been shown to be a safe and effective treatment for aortic stenosis, with improved outcomes and reduced risk of complications compared to open-heart surgery.
