Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement

Apollo CVHF Heart Institute is emerging as center of excellence for structural interventional procedures for Valvular diseases.

Our center is becoming choice for Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) also known as Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) in Ahmadabad, Gujarat.

Recently expert super specialist team of Interventional cardiologists at Apollo CVHF Heart Institute, Ahmedabad performed Mitral Valve repair- Percutaneous Mitral Valve Repair (PMVR) procedure on a 92 year old patient , first ever of its kind, in the state of Gujarat.

Know the Importance of Timely Treatment

Take back your future by starting discussions with your doctor about treatment options as soon as
your aortic stenosis is diagnosed. As your aortic stenosis becomes severe and you have symptoms, the only effective way to treat it is to replace your heart valve. Today, patients who have severe aortic stenosis and are experiencing symptoms have two options to replace their aortic valve:
TAVR (transcatheter aortic valve replacement) or open heart surgery (also known as surgical aortic valve replacement, or SAVR).

Many patients will die waiting for Aortic Valve Replacement
Aortic stenosis is a common public health problem affecting millions of people around the world. It is estimated that up to 12.4 % of people over age 75 have aortic stenosis. About 80% of adults with symptomatic aortic stenosis are male.

TAVR Procedure

TAVR/TAVI is a less invasive procedure that doesn’t require open heart surgery. The most common technique involves a small incision made in the leg, where a catheter will be inserted into your artery to replace your diseased valve while your heart is still beating.

TAVR/TAVI is approved indication for all symptomatic severe aortic stenosis patients who are at any level of risk for open heart surgery.
The use of less invasive procedures – particularly TAVI via transfemoral approach performed under conscious sedation and/or local anesthesia, may present an opportunity to minimize ICU and hospital stay – ESC Guidance for the Diagnosis and Management of CV Disease during the COVID-19 Pandemic


Low complication Rate

TAVI procedures result in low rates of all cause and cardiovascular mortality,all stroke,and life threatening and major bleeding evente 3

Faster Recovery versus Surgery

TAVI allows for faster discharge post-procedure including direct discharge home 4

Better Quality of Life

TAVI observes improvement in Quality of life scores versus surgical aortic valve replacement 5

Alleviation of Symptoms

A majority of TAVI patients will become asymptotic and more mobile in the years post-procedure 6

Extended Life Expectancy

TAVI patients are observed for higher rates of survival, including
with inoperable classifications 7

Observed Durability

The PARTNER trials have exhibited five year outcomes demonstrating continued durability and excellent hemodynamic performance 8,9


If your native aortic or mitral heart valve has been replaced with a bioprosthetic heart valve or your native mitral valve has been repaired with a prosthetic ring, two common problems may occur over time:

  • Stenosis: when your heart valve narrows and does not open completely and/or
  • Regurgitation: when your heart valve does not close completely and blood leaks backwards It is important that your heart valves are always working properly. Your heart valves should:
  • Be properly formed and flexible
  • Open all the way so that the right amount of blood can pass through
  • Close tightly so that no blood leaks back into the chamber
