This medical animation illustrates the minimally-invasive treatment called transcatheter
aortic valve implantation; also known as TAVI or TAVR.
TAVI (Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation) is the procedure to replace a diseased
aortic valve without open-heart surgery or surgical removal of the native valve.
The implantation procedure involves accessing the femoral artery, performing balloon
valvuloplasty, and then advancing the device across the native valve.
