Lin Lang, MD, demonstrates the transcatheter aortic valve replacement procedure, an alternative to open heart surgery. Giving you a unique view of the SAPIEN Transcatheter Heart Valve, you will see how TAVR can help repair severe aortic stenosis.
Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) Surgery
The Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) procedure, also referred to as Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI), can help patients with aortic stenosis who, prior to this procedure, were unable to seek surgical treatment.
An innovator in the treatment of heart disease, Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater, Florida was the first hospital in the Tampa Bay area selected to offer the Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) procedure to patients with aortic stenosis, and it is now one of only two hospitals in the state of Florida chosen to participate in the PARTNER II Trial, which is intended to make TAVR therapy a life-saving option for more patients.
In addition, Morton Plant is now utilizing the Medtronic CoreValve, the latest FDA-approved valve for TAVR surgery. For patients with small valves, the self-expanding CoreValve provides the Morton Plant Heart Team with another means of treating patients previously considered inoperable.
