    An interventional cardiologist explains what structural heart disease is and the treatments available, such as TAVR, a minimally invasive heart valve replacement procedure.

  • Less Invasive Aortic Valve Procedure Approved for Low-Risk Patients

    TAVR, or transcatheter aortic valve replacement, used to be limited to patients too high risk for open-heart surgery but a new FDA decision allows the less invasive procedure to be used in even low-risk patients who need a new aortic heart valve.
