TAVI - aortic stenosis treatment

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is a minimally invasive procedure in which the faulty aortic valve is replaced with a prosthetic valve using a small tube that travels from an artery in the leg or chest to the heart. TAVI is less invasive than traditional open-heart surgery and often reserved for individuals at increased risk of complications from aortic valve surgery.
