Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation / Percutaneous Aortic Valve Replacement - What it is


​Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI), also referred to as percutaneous aortic valve replacement, is a minimally invasive procedure to treat severe symptomatic aortic stenosis. This is a condition where the heart’s aortic valve becomes narrowed or obstructed, preventing it from opening properly and blocking the flow of blood from the left lower chamber of the heart to the aorta. In this procedure, the diseased aortic valve is replaced to restore normal blood flow.
