Also known as transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI), transcatheter aortic valve replacement is a minimally invasive procedure to replace aortic valve of people suffering from aortic valve stenosis. It is an ideal choice for patients who are at a high risk of complication from valve replacement and those who cannot undergo open heart surgery. The procedure can be performed in three ways- transfemoral approach, transapical approach and transaortic approach. It takes about 45-60 minutes and is performed under local anesthesia.
