Don’t let a severe aortic stenosis diagnosis hold you back. Nothing else ever has. If your doctor has recommended getting your aortic valve replaced, it is time to put yourself in the driver’s seat of your health.
Be proactive by talking to your doctor about all of your treatment options, especially if you are experiencing symptoms such as fatigue and shortness of breath. Instead of waiting for your severe aortic stenosis to get worse, take control of your disease by getting treatment now.
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) gives you a way to live your best life without open heart surgery. Studies have shown that this less invasive procedure may shorten recovery time, reduce time spent at the hospital and get patients home quicker.1
Start your golden years off right by asking your doctor if you are eligible for TAVR.
It takes courage to take charge of your severe aortic stenosis. Take the first step by seeking out a TAVR Heart Team who will evaluate you for all treatment options.
Your TAVR Doctor will run several tests to determine the best treatment plan for you and to evaluate if you are a TAVR candidate. Some of these tests include:
In some cases, you may have already taken some of these tests. However, it may be important that the tests be taken again at the request of your TAVR Doctor.
Although it may feel like a lot of appointments, it’s important because your TAVR Doctor wants to make sure they are recommending the best treatment option for you.
