TAVR- Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement

A "sternotomy," in which the chest is surgically divided (opened) for the procedure, is typically required for valve replacement. All of the chest bones can remain in place when the TAVR or TAVI procedures are performed through extremely small incisions. There are two methods that can be used. Using a minimally invasive surgical approach with a small chest incision and entering through a large artery in the chest or through the tip of the left ventricle (the apex), which is known as the transapical approach, or through the femoral artery (large artery in the groyne), the transfemoral approach, which does not require a surgical incision in the chest.
