Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation(TAVI)
Also called Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), this is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to replace the aortic valve in people with aortic valve stenosis.
There is no longer a need for the chest cavity to be completely opened for the operation.
Prosthetic valves, constructed with advanced materials can be placed in the correct position with the help of a catheter.
Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI)
Elderly patients with aortic stenosis who are high risk or intermediate risk from surgical aortic valve replacement may benefit from TAVI thereby avoiding open surgery which helps early recovery and improved quality of life
Previous Surgical Valve Dysfunction
If you have had a previous valve replacement surgically using a tissue valve and if you have been diagnosed for that valve being abnormally functioning, you may be suitable for a non-surgical option called Valve-in-valve
Percutaneous Pulmonary Valve Implantation (PPVI)
Patients with previous surgical repair of Fallot's Tetrology or previous surgical pulmonary valve implantation who now have a dysfunctional pulmonary valve may benefit from percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation avoiding conventional open heart surgery
Percutaneous Mitral and Tricuspid Valve Therapies
A previously replaced mitral or tricuspid tissue valve dysfunction might be treated with a valve-in-valve procedure which involves treating the dysfunctional valve without conventional open heart surgery
