Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)
For some patients, traditional open surgery to replace damaged heart valves is not an option. The Heart Institute at Palmetto General Hospital now offers a revolutionary, minimally invasive treatment for those suffering from severe aortic stenosis. Severe aortic stenosis is a very serious heart condition. For some patients, traditional treatments such as open-heart surgery may not be an option.
However, there is new hope with the TAVR procedure. TAVR has already helped thousands of patients with aortic stenosis return to the things they enjoy in life.
Valve Surgery Without a Chest Incision
Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) is an advance heart procedure which provides a minimally invasive treatment option for patients suffering from severe aortic stenosis. The less invasive procedure is done without any incision through the chest.
The benefit of TAVR is that patients may receive a shorter hospital stay and a quicker recovery time.
Who Is A Candidate?
Candidates for TAVR must not have other co-existing conditions that would prevent them from experiencing the benefits from fixing their aortic stenosis.
