What is TAVR (Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement)?

TAVR (also known as transcatheter aortic valve implantation or TAVI for short) is a less invasive procedure for replacing a diseased aortic valve. During the procedure, your TAVR Doctor will use a catheter to implant a new valve within your diseased valve. TAVR can be performed through multiple approaches; however, the most common is through a small incision in the leg. TAVR procedures can be performed under conscious sedation, rather than general anesthesia.
