Heart Valve Replacement
Do you know what is TAVR or why it is taken as a better option than open heart surgery?
Well, nowadays, doctors and surgeons are using this less invasive technique which is known as TAVR or Transcatheter aortic valve replacement.
Understand How Stenosis Occurs
Aorta is a one-way path which opens to allow blood to surge from the heart to the other organs of the body. The differences and tension occur as someone ages. But as you age, the valve’s leaflets may stiffen and become clogged due to calcium deposits which further restrict blood flow. Other symptoms include dizziness, tired, and of course, breathless. If the aorta valve is not replaced in time, the patient may die within two years from aortic stenosis and its dangerous symptoms.
