Stanford Health Care Treats Aortic Stenosis Without Surgery Using TAVR
Stanford Medicine specialists are experts at performing transcatheter aortic valve replacements (TAVR) to treat aortic stenosis. Ours was the first TAVR program in northern California, and we are among the first programs to offer TAVR to lower-risk patients. The aortic valve controls blood flow from the heart into a large artery called the aorta. Aortic stenosis is a narrowing of the aortic valve, which makes it harder for the valve to open. TAVR is a nonsurgical procedure to replace the aortic valve. Listen to Dr. Bill Fearon, director of interventional cardiology at Stanford Medicine, explain the TAVR procedure. Learn how you can benefit from this minimally invasive treatment.

Innovative, Minimally Invasive Mitral and Tricuspid Valve Therapies
Mitral valve disease is one of the most common heart valve problems, and tricuspid valve disease is a growing concern. Stanford Medicine has several clinical trials exploring new catheter-based valve therapies. Hear Dr. Rahul Sharma explain different types of transcatheter valve procedures and the benefits they provide. For example, MitraClip™ is a small device doctors can place on the mitral valve to reduce leakage. For patients with heart failure, MitraClip is more effective than surgery. And catheter-based procedures are safer than open-heart surgery for high-risk patients.
