Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement
Bradenton Cardiology Center offers the minimally invasive Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) procedure to patients with severe aortic stenosis.
The new TAVR procedure is an alternative to traditional open-heart surgery and can offer an improved quality of life for patients. In this procedure, a collapsible aortic heart valve is placed at the site using a thin, flexible tube called a catheter.
TAVR is also an alternative for high-risk patients with severe aortic stenosis, who may otherwise not be a candidate for open aortic valve replacement.
