Carmel, CA Aortic Stenosis Procedure Found Success In Study Published In New England Journal Of Medicine

by Richard Kuehn on 03/21/17

A minimally invasive procedure to repair diseased heart valves delivered about the same health outcomes for patients as open heart surgery, fantastic results from a study which was published in the New England Journal of Medicine.  A presentation was made last week at the American College of Cardiology’s annual meeting which compared the procedures in patients with aortic stenosis, a common disorder where blood flow from the heart is restricted due to the narrowing of the aortic valve opening.  Medtronic has come up with an artificial valve that is fed to the patient’s hearts through a tube inserted in the large artery in the groin.  The procedure is known as transcatheter aortic valve replacement or TAVR which appears to work quite well.
