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.
What is Aortic Stenosis?
Learn who might be at risk for aortic stenosis as well as signs, symptoms and treatment options.
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 Repair or Replacement
Mitral regurgitation, or 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 Mitral Valve Repair (TMVr) with MitraClip®. This is a small device that is attached to the mitral valve and helps restore normal blood flow through the heart. MitraClip therapy is a less invasive treatment option for patients with mitral regurgitation.
Surgical Valve Repair or Replacement
Mitral valve repair or replacement (MVR) or aortic valve repair or replacement (AVR). Heart valve surgery is done to replace or repair heart valves that aren’t working correctly. Heart valve problems make the heart work too hard, sometimes leading to heart failure. Most valve replacements involve the aortic and mitral valves.
