What can I expect with the TAVR valve procedure?
TAVR is less invasive than traditional valve replacement surgery. The procedure is typically initiated through the blood vessels in the groin. In cases where the groin vessels are not usable, the valve is placed using a 1-2 inch incision on the chest.
In most cases, patients return home within two days.
