Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR), or Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI), is aimed at rectifying a compromised aortic valve through a minimally invasive approach, eliminating the need for traditional open-heart surgery.

TAVR is tailored for individuals afflicted by severe symptomatic aortic stenosis, a condition marked by a constricted aortic valve impeding proper blood flow from the heart. It serves as a promising alternative for patients with intermediate or higher risk levels, who may not be ideal candidates for conventional open heart surgery. This innovative technique introduces a new valve without necessitating the removal of the malfunctioning valve, revolutionizing treatment methodology.

Diverging from conventional open-heart surgery, TAVR employs a catheter-based delivery mechanism to guide the replacement valve. This negates the necessity for a chest incision and complete valve extraction. Similar to inserting a stent within an artery, the collapsible replacement valve is deftly navigated to its destination through a catheter. Once deployed, the new valve seamlessly supersedes the old valve leaflets, enabling the replacement valve's specialized tissue to regulate blood flow adeptly.

Eligibility for TAVR is meticulously assessed by Dr Sandhu, weighing factors such as the patient's risk profile for open heart surgery. Comprehensive evaluations, encompassing CT Aortography, Echocardiography, and standard pre-procedure blood tests, ensure a tailored and informed approach.

Hospitalization for TAVR typically spans 3 to 4 days, during which patients' recovery and replacement valve integration are closely monitored. The procedure's minimally invasive nature contributes to a significantly shorter recuperation period compared to traditional surgery, facilitating a swift return to daily activities.

Guided by advanced techniques and compassionate patient care, TAVR stands as a beacon of hope, reshaping the landscape of cardiac interventions and restoring patients' cardiac health and overall well-being.
