Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) is a minimally invasive alternative to open heart valve surgery for patients with aortic valve stenosis.

Once reserved only for patients at elevated risk for traditional valve surgery, today, TAVR eligibility is more inclusive of severe, symptomatic calcific aortic stenosis patients, independent of surgical risk.

Thanks to the minimally invasive nature of transcatheter procedures, TAVR benefits often include:

  • Faster recovery after the procedure
  • Improvement in symptoms sooner as compared to open procedures
  • Option for patients who are considered inoperable by traditional means
