If your aortic stenosis is severe and you have symptoms, then the time for treatment is now. Instead of waiting for your disease to get worse, you have the power to take control of your severe aortic stenosis with a less invasive option — you have the power to put yourself first.
Ask your doctor at your next appointment if you are eligible for TAVR.
Unlike open heart surgery, TAVR does not involve opening the chest. You can treat your severe aortic stenosis with a shorter average hospital stay and less time in the hospital.
The benefits of TAVR, as compared to open heart surgery, may include:
- Faster recovery so you can get back to doing what you love
- Less invasive with minimal scarring
- Shorter hospital stay
- Less pain and anxiety
- Does not require your chest to be opened
- It will help your heart work better, so you feel better sooner
The major risks of TAVR are similar to open heart surgery and include death, stroke, bleeding and vascular complications.
