Am I eligible for TAVR?
Severe aortic stenosis, an intermediate or high-risk consequence of aortic valve replacement, is a need for surgery (open-heart surgery).
Will the surgery be painful?
Doctors use general or local anesthesia to numb the area, so you don’t feel pain, however, you might be awake during the procedure.
How do I prepare for the procedure?
Your medical history will be investigated by your doctor throughout the consultation. You’ll need to stop taking some medications.
What happens after surgery?
You'll need follow-up checkups, lifestyle adjustments, and excellent dental hygiene post-surgery and recovery.
