Orlando Health Heart Institute - New TAVR procedure means new hope for patients
Published on Sep 21, 2012
A new approach to replacing heart valves is giving new hope to patients once considered 'too sick' for surgery. Doctors at the Heart Valve Center at the Orlando Health Heart Institute
recently began using the first artificial heart valve approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, to replace a narrowed heart valve by going through a leg artery instead of a
traditional open heart surgery.
The procedure, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), is designed for high-risk patients living with severe chest pain, congestive heart failure
(including shortness of breath, fatigue, and edema) and other symptoms of aortic stenosis — an age-related heart disease developed when calcium deposits cause the aortic valve to narrow,
forcing the heart to work harder to pump enough blood through the smaller opening.
