Annually, an estimated 250,000 U.S. patients suffer from severe, symptomatic aortic stenosis. Traditional open-heart surgery has long been the gold standard treatment for this disease but, today, patients deemed inoperable or high risk for surgery may be candidates for a procedure called transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), as our graphic shows.

With 500+ social shares, my last post about CoreValve's accelerated FDA approval suggests that our community is really interested to learn more about transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) procedures. To help us learn more about TAVR, I recently met with Dr. Alan Malki at the St. Bernardine Medical Center in San Bernardino, California. In this video, you will get additional insights from Dr. Malki, who has performed of 2,000 valvular operations, about the treatment of severe aortic…

Valve disease

Valve disease occurs if one or more of your heart valves does not open or close properly. Types of heart valve disease include stenosis, atresia, regurgitation or incompetence.
