Severe aortic stenosis, also known as heart valve failure, is dangerous and delaying treatment can be deadly. If you have heart valve failure, the time is now to be an active participant in your heart health.

TAVR is a less invasive treatment option and should be considered for those with heart valve failure and have symptoms. With TAVR, most patients return home the next day and have a shorter recovery time, getting them back to everyday activities.

Waiting is not winning.

You've made it this far. Ask your doctor for a TAVR evaluation because like your life, treatment can't wait.
