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.
