Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement

Preprocedure and Postprocedure Imaging
      Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has rapidly evolved as a percutaneous minimally invasive treatment of patients with severe, symptomatic aortic stenosis who are at very high risk for surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR).
