New treatment for heart valve disease:
Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)
Over five million Americans are diagnosed each year with heart valve disease, many of whom suffer from aortic stenosis, which is a narrowing of the heart’s aortic valve. Once symptoms develop, aortic stenosis is a life-threatening condition that progresses rapidly. Chest pain, fatigue, shortness of breath, lightheadedness and fainting are not always the symptoms of age or slowing down. It can be something more serious. It’s important to be screened by a cardiologist, and if needed, to receive treatment quickly.
For patients who are considered high-risk or too sick for open-heart valve surgery, Genesys Heart Institute physicians can perform the innovative Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement procedure, or TAVR. This groundbreaking procedure replaces the aortic valve using a catheter-based approach. The minimally invasive procedure provides a much shorter recovery time with less pain, while dramatically improving a patient’s quality of life.
Now there is hope and you have treatment options. Genesys Heart Institute Valve Clinic physicians focus on all aspects of heart disease, including a complete range of heart valve screenings and the latest treatment options.
