What is TAVI or What is TAVR?
The most ingenuous treatments that are being used in the present can be described as the Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) can also be called TAVI, TAVI Full Form is Transcatheter aortic Valve Implantation
Until recently, Valve replacement through open heart surgery was the onlythe option to patients with severely Aortic Stenosis. However, many patients are not able to avail this option due to advanced age, a malfunctioning of the left ventricle and other comorbidities.
Thanks to the development of TAVI or TAVR treatment in Mumbai for these patients is now also feasible. TAVI and TAVR both are same and are highly beneficial option for patients suffering from severe Aortic Stenosis symptoms that are not suitable for traditional Valve Replacement Surgery.
It is a minimally-invasive Cardiac Surgical procedure that heals the valve but does not do away with the damaged, old valve. In addition to this, it inserts a replacement valve inside the aortic valve’s location.
Similar to the placement of a stent into an artery. The TAVI/TAVR procedure delivers a compact replacement valve into the location with the aid of an instrument. After the stent has been expanded, the valve is deployed at the desired location.
