Heart valves control the direction of blood flow through your heart. Heart disease effects the valves of your heart and can cause congestive heart failure and infections.
Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG)
Normally, blood vessels bring blood to the heart muscle. If one of them is blocked, a surgeon will do surgery to try to fix the blood flow. This surgery is called Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) and uses another blood vessel to bypass the blockage. There may be surgery on more than one blocked blood vessel. CABG surgery will help increase blood flow to the heart muscle. After surgery, many people have less chest pain, can breathe easier and are able to exercise more. The chances of a heart attack may also decrease.
Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)
TAVR is an advanced, minimally invasive surgical procedure for patients with aortic stenosis, which is a narrowing of the aortic valve opening. TAVR is less invasive than a traditional open-heart aortic valve replacement surgery.
Transcatheter Mitral Valve Replacement (MitraClip®)
Mitral Valve Repair (TMVr) with MitraClip therapy is a less invasive treatment option for patients with mitral regurgitation (MR). MR is caused by a leaky heart valve and can cause heart failure. Some MR patients who have been turned down for open-heart surgery in the past may be candidates for MitraClip, which is a small device that is attached to the mitral valve and helps restore normal blood flow through the heart.
Protected PCI with Impella® 2.5
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with Impella 2.5 is one of the world's smallest heart pumps for angioplasty and stenting patients who were previously told they are not candidates for surgery. The pump is used to maintain stable heart function during surgery, lowering certain risks in patients with severe coronary artery disease.
