The commonest valve abnormality due to age-related degeneration is narrowing of the aortic valve, a condition called as aortic stenosis. Hitherto, open-heart surgery was the only option available to treat this condition, until recently. However, not all patients are suited for open-heart surgery due to age or general health parameters. More recently valve replacement can be done without open-heart surgery through a key-hole procedure from the groin. This treatment is called as Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation/Replacement or simply TAVI/TAVR.


Recovery Time from TAVI Replacement
Quicker Recovery Time

This allows most patients to have their valve replacement and walk out of the hospital in 3-5 days time.

TAVI Minimally Invasive Surgery
Minimally Invasive

The recovery of patients is therefore much quicker compared to open-heart surgery.

TAVI Treatment for High Risk Patients
Less dependence on Open Heart Surgery

Patients do not have a scar on their chest.
