Transcutaneous Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVR)

Transcutaneous Aortic Valve Implantation or TAVR is done when the aortic valve fails to open and is a great option for the patients at the high risk of surgical complications following an open-heart surgery. Patients with kidney damage and lung related ailments too get benefited through this procedure. It will decrease major symptoms like recurrent chest pain, fainting, swelling in the legs and prevents sudden cardiac failure and death.

During the procedure the surgeon will insert a catheter to access the heart and valve. Soon after positioning the new valve, the balloon gets inflated and replaces the valve in the appropriate place. The catheter is removed after securely placing the valve.
