Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) or transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is minimally invasive heart surgery performed to replace narrow aortic valves in the heart. TAVR/TAVI enables you to return to routine activity more quickly than open-heart surgery. Patients who have undertaken the procedure describe an enhancement in their quality of life shortly post-procedure. Additional benefits include a brief hospital stay, absence of chest marks and instant ease from symptoms, improved heart function, and reduced pain and worry.
Dr. Ramesh Daggubati from NYU Winthrop Hospital, USA and Dr. Ashwin Mehta from Jaslok Hospital, India discuss the aortic stenosis scenario in India and how Indian Transcatheter Heart Valve – MYVAL is a new lifeline for patients.
