TAVR

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)

TAVR is a minimally invasive treatment option for Aortic Valve Stenosis. This is a procedure in which a small cut is made in the groin area and a thin, flexible tube with a new artificial heart valve is guided through an artery in the leg up to the diseased heart valve. Once the new valve is placed into the patient’s diseased heart valve, it begins working immediately.

Patients, on average, have a one-night hospital stay and are discharged home the next day. Patients are expected to participate in an outpatient cardiac rehab program, starting a few weeks after the procedure.

To set up an initial appointment to see if TAVR is right for you, please contact the Structural Heart Coordinator at (740) 434-7768. To learn more about the procedure visit these webpages Medtronic and Edwards or listen to Dr. Jason Schott on his most recent podcast by clicking the image below.
