Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement

Providing Lifesaving Services for Patients with Aortic Stenosis TAVR

Aortic stenosis causes a narrowing of the aortic valve which makes it more difficult for the heart to pump blood. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a less invasive procedure used to treat patients with severe aortic stenosis.

The TAVR procedure enables the delivery of an artificial heart valve through a small incision using a catheter-based approach. The new valve functions like a normal heart valve, improving blood flow and reduces symptoms caused by aortic stenosis. Baptist Beaumont Hospital is the only hospital in Southeast Texas that performs this procedure.
