Transcatheter aortic valve replacement information and locations in Mexico

A transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) or transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is a minimally invasive procedure in which a new valve is implanted over the aortic valve to help restore the blood flow affected by severe aortic stenosis.
With this procedure, patients may have the option of using local or general anesthesia throughout the treatment. A minor incision may be made on the groin, neck, or chest, depending on the patient. The replacement valve is then inserted into the damaged valve using a thin, flexible tube; similar to a stent, it pushes against the old valve and keeps the blood flowing.
