TAVR is a fairly new, FDA approved, minimally invasive surgical procedure approved for people with symptomatic aortic stenosis who are considered a moderate or high-risk patient for standard valve replacement surgery.

Similar to a stent placed in an artery, the TAVR approach delivers a fully collapsible replacement valve to the valve site through a catheter. Once the valve is expanded, it pushes the old valve out of the way and the tissue in the replacement valve takes over the job regulating blood flow.
