Expanding Options with Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement

 

The Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center is a high volume program for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), and the nation’s first training site for the minimalist, percutaneous conscious-sedation approach to TAVR. It is the only site in Northeast Ohio to offer TAVR for low risk severe aortic stenosis patients through the Medtronic Evolut R Low Risk trial, in addition to FDA approved indications for intermediate and high risk populations.
