What is TAVI/TAVR Surgery?

TAVI/TAVR helps you unlock a new era in cardiac wellness. TAVI surgery, or Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation, a.k.a TAVR surgery or Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement is a breakthrough procedure that transforms cardiac care. This minimal invasive technique addresses aortic valve issues without the need for traditional surgery, ensuring a renewed lease on life.

Types of TAVI/TAVR Procedures: Tailored Solutions for Diverse Needs

TAVI/TAVR comes in various types, each designed to address specific conditions and patient profiles. Here are the primary types:

Balloon-Expandable Valves

Description: In this procedure, a balloon-expandable valve is guided to the aortic position using a catheter. The balloon is then inflated to secure the new valve in place.

Suitability: Ideal for patients with aortic stenosis or regurgitation, especially those with anatomical considerations that require precise valve placement.

Self-Expanding Valves

Description: Self-expanding valves are constructed to automatically expand once in position. They are delivered through a catheter, providing a secure fit within the aortic valve.

Suitability: Suited for patients with aortic valve issues, particularly those with challenging anatomies where precise placement is crucial.

Transapical Approach

Description: This approach involves accessing the heart through a small incision between the ribs (apex) and delivering the TAVI/TAVR device directly to the aortic valve.

Suitability: Considered for patients who may not be suitable for the transfemoral approach due to vascular issues or other anatomical considerations.

Transfemoral Approach

Description: The TAVI/TAVR device is delivered through the femoral artery, typically accessed via a small incision in the groin.

Suitability: Commonly used for patients with suitable femoral arteries, providing a less invasive option compared to other approaches.

Transcarotid Approach

Description: Accessing the carotid artery (neck) provides an alternative route for delivering the TAVI/TAVR device to the aortic valve.

Suitability: Considered for patients with femoral or other vascular issues, allowing a different access point for TAVI/TAVR.

Who Needs TAVI/TAVR?

You may need TAVI/TAVR in case you’re experiencing the following symptoms:

  • Chest pain or tightness (angina)
  • Shortness of breath, especially during exertion or lying flat
  • Fainting or lightheadedness, particularly with exertion
  • Fatigue or weakness
  • Heart palpitations or irregular heartbeat

Aortic Valve Diseases That Need TAVI/TAVR

TAVI/TAVR is an effective intervention for treating a range of conditions related to the aortic valve. It is commonly recommended for patients dealing with:

caution

Aortic Stenosis

Narrowing of the aortic valve, restricting blood flow.

caution

Aortic Regurgitation

Backflow of blood into the heart due to a leaky aortic valve.

caution

Degenerative Valve Disease

Conditions where the aortic valve deteriorates over time.

caution

High Surgical Risk Patients

Individuals who may not be suitable candidates for traditional open-heart surgery.

caution

Challenging Anatomies

Patients with anatomical considerations that make traditional surgery difficult.

caution

Elderly Patients

Especially beneficial for older individuals who may not tolerate open-heart surgery well.

Kauvery Hospital's TAVI/TAVR: Overview

At Kauvery Hospital, advanced technology is used in Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation/Replacement (TAVI/TAVR) to provide Innovative care for patients with severe aortic stenosis. Our Forefront methods ensure precise, minimally invasive treatments that lead to quicker recoveries and better outcomes.

Our High-tech imaging technology ensures accurate placement of the valve.

Detailed Explanation:

At Kauvery Hospital, we use advanced imaging techniques like 3D echocardiography and CT scans to guide the TAVI/TAVR procedure with exceptional accuracy.

These advanced imaging tools provide detailed views of the heart, allowing our doctors to place the new valve precisely where it’s needed.

This precision reduces the risk of complications, minimises the duration of the procedure, and enhances overall outcomes.

By employing the latest in imaging technology, we can tailor each procedure to the patient's unique heart anatomy, ensuring a personalised and highly effective treatment for severe aortic stenosis.

We use minimally invasive methods to reduce recovery time and improve patient comfort.

Detailed Explanation

Our TAVI/TAVR procedures are designed to be minimally invasive, requiring only small incisions or even just a puncture in the leg.

This approach significantly reduces bodily trauma compared to traditional open-heart surgery, resulting in less pain and a lower risk of infection.

Patients benefit from a much faster recovery time, often returning to their daily activities within a few days.

At Kauvery Hospital, our priority is to enhance patient comfort and accelerate healing through these advanced, minimally invasive techniques, ensuring a smoother and quicker path to recovery.

We use the latest valve technology to ensure long-lasting results.

Detailed Explanation

At Kauvery Hospital, we employ the latest in valve technology for our TAVI/TAVR procedures. These advanced valves are made from durable materials that offer superior performance and longevity compared to older models.

Designed to accommodate various patient anatomies, these modern valves ensure a proper fit and optimal function.

By using these high-quality valves, we provide our patients with a durable, efficient solution that significantly improves their quality of life and reduces the likelihood of future procedures.

Our commitment to using the best valve technology ensures that our patients receive the highest standard of care available.

Intravascular ultrasound imaging provides real-time, high-resolution images of the blood vessel's internal structure, allowing for better assessment of the severity and characteristics of the stenosis.

Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) systems with advanced imaging capabilities enable interventional radiologists to visualise blood flow dynamics and accurately assess the results of fistuloplasty in real-time.

Pre-procedural 3D printing and modelling techniques allow for the creation of patient-specific vascular anatomical models, that helps optimise procedural efficiency and outcomes.
