Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI)

Surgical aortic valve replacement is still the standard form of treatment for most patients with severe symptomatic aortic valve stenosis. However, not all patients qualify for surgery. These patients are left with suboptimal approaches such as medical management or balloon valvuloplasty.

There is an important breakthrough for replacing the aortic valve called Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) also previously known as Percutaneous Aortic Valve Replacement (PAVR).
