What is TAVR?
An innovative procedure pioneered by Columbia and Weill Cornell scientists at NewYork-Presbyterian can treat select patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis in a less invasive manner than traditional open heart surgery. Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement, or TAVR, allows doctors to implant a device into a damaged aortic valve in only a few short steps, so that blood can be pumped more efficiently. For complex cardiology patients, this procedure minimizes the risk of complications and offers a shorter recovery period. See how it works in this short video.
