Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement

At age 84, James discovered that his aortic valve was damaged and needed to be replaced. Having undergone open heart surgery for another condition years before, James had already experienced a lengthy and painful recovery process, and did not want to endure another traditional procedure. Instead, he came to the Temple Heart & Vascular Institute for a minimally-invasive treatment option - transcatheter aortic valve replacement.
