At the WVU Heart and Vascular Institute Center for Aortic Valve Disease, experts specialize in a procedure called TAVR, also known as transcatheter aortic valve replacement.
A new approach to treating aortic stenosis, TAVR replaces the aortic valve through a small incision in the groin. This technology enables our physicians to help patients with fatigue and shortness of breath, who are not candidates for open heart surgery.
After the minimally invasive procedure, patients often experience a dramatic change, sometimes within hours. The experts at the Center for Aortic Valve Disease are committed to helping these patients enjoy their lives again.
