The Future of Heart Valve Treatment: TAVI/TAVR with Dr. Srinivasa Prasad BV

Heart valve disease, particularly aortic stenosis, poses significant health risks if left untreated. Traditional open-heart surgery has long been the standard treatment, but recent advancements have introduced less invasive and highly effective alternatives. As an interventional cardiologist based in Bangalore, I, Dr. Srinivasa Prasad BV, specialize in Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) or Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR), offering my patients a safer and more efficient option for managing severe aortic stenosis.

What is TAVI/TAVR?

TAVI/TAVR is a revolutionary procedure designed to treat aortic stenosis, a condition characterized by the narrowing of the aortic valve opening, which restricts blood flow from the heart to the rest of the body. This procedure is performed using a catheter-based approach, avoiding the need for open-heart surgery.

Procedure Overview

Advantages of TAVI/TAVR

TAVI/TAVR offers numerous benefits over traditional surgical methods:

Minimally Invasive

The procedure requires only small incisions, reducing the physical trauma to the patient.

Reduced Recovery Time

Patients typically experience shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery periods, allowing them to return to their daily routines sooner.

Lower Risk

Especially beneficial for elderly patients or those with other health conditions who are considered high-risk for conventional surgery.

Improved Quality of Life

TAVI/TAVR can significantly alleviate symptoms of aortic stenosis, such as chest pain, shortness of breath, and fatigue, thereby enhancing the patient’s overall quality of life.

Who Can Benefit from TAVI/TAVR?

TAVI/TAVR is primarily recommended for patients with severe aortic stenosis who are at intermediate or high risk for open-heart surgery. This includes:

The Procedure What to Expect

Undergoing TAVI/TAVR involves several steps to ensure a successful outcome:

Pre-Procedure Assessment

Comprehensive evaluations, including imaging and diagnostic tests, to determine the suitability of TAVI/TAVR for the patient.

Procedure Day

The procedure is performed in a specialized catheterization laboratory under local or general anesthesia.

Post-Procedure Care

Patients are closely monitored in a recovery unit and typically discharged within a few days, with follow-up appointments to track recovery and valve function.
