TAVR/Structural Heart

Structural heart disease, or cardiac defects that do not affect the heart’s blood vessels, often demand the combined services of the Heart & Vascular Institute’s interventional cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons.

Here are the highlights:

TAVR

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement: A replacement aortic valve placed within the original, via a catheter.

TMVR

Transcatheter Mitral Valve Replacement: A replacement mitral valve placed within the existing surgically replaced valve, via  a catheter.

MitraClip

For patients with degenerative mitral regurgitation who are not candidates for traditional surgery. This procedure does not require opening the chest or stopping the heart temporarily.

PFO (Patent Foramen Ovale) Closures

A hole in the heart everyone is born with but only 25 percent of the general population retains.

Left Atrial Appendage Closures

When blood collects, then clots, in the left atrial appendage of patients with atrial fibrillation.
