TAVI, also called TAVR (Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement), is an invasive procedure that is designed to replace a diseased aortic valve.
Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) involves inserting a catheter into a blood vessel in the upper leg or chest and passing it towards the aortic valve. The catheter is then used to guide and fix a replacement valve over the top of the old one.
The right doctor to consult for TAVI is a Cardiac Surgeon.
The success rate varies between 71-89%.
Possible complications after TAVI may include vascular injuries, bleeding, stroke, atrioventricular conduction system injuries, Aortic regurgitation, etc.
