What is TAVI?

TAVI is a minimally invasive procedure where the surgeon inserts a new valve without removing the damaged and old valve. The new valve is inserted inside the diseased one. The surgery is usually called transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) or a transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).

Things you need to know 

  • TAVI is performed under the influence of anaesthesia.
  • The procedure takes about 2 to 4 hours.
  • You will be required to stay in the hospital for about 2 to 5 days followed by a few more days of rest
  • Your average length of stay will be around three days to a week.

How to prepare for the treatment?

  • Your doctor will check your comprehensive health.
  • The medical and surgical team will give you instructions on preparing for your transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) procedure.
  • Moreover, you may have to go through X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, and other tests to evaluate the health of your lungs and heart.
  • You will also have to appraise your medical team about:
  • If you are receiving any drugs, including over-the-counter medicines.
  • If you smoke, then you may be ordered to quit.
  • The healthcare provider may also recommend you stop taking a specific medication.

Procedure involved

  • During the procedure, the surgeon will sedate the patient with general anesthesia.
  • The Medication will be provided through an IV to avoid blood clots.
  • The health care team will continuously monitor your blood pressure, heart function, and rhythm. Any developments in heart rhythm will be noted and operated with treatments as called for during the procedure.
  • During the procedure, the doctor may make a small cut in one of three places:
  1. the groin
  2. the neck or
  3.  a space between the ribs
  • Sometimes, an alternative approach is used where the doctor will place a hollow tube (catheter) through the access point.
  • The surgeon will use advanced imaging techniques to insert the catheter through your blood vessels, to your heart, and into your aortic valve.
  • The surgeon will place the new valve, and a balloon on the catheter's tip is inflated to enlarge the replacement valve into the correct position.
  • When the surgeon gets assured that the valve is secured correctly, the catheter is removed.

What to expect after the treatment?

  • You will be transferred to the intensive care unit for monitoring after your procedure. In most cases, a patient has to stay two to five days in the hospital after the surgery.
  • After your doctors feel you have recovered sufficiently from the procedure, you will be allowed to go home.
  • You will have to adhere to all instructions for medicines, pain control, diet, activity, and wound care.
  • You'll also be required to follow-up appointments with your doctor after TAVI.
  • Here are some instructions which you will have to follow after TAVI,
  • Doctors will prescribe you blood-thinning medicine to rule out blood clots after a TAVI.
  • Start walking to return to regular activity but avoid any heavy lifting.
  • Maintain good dental hygiene to ward off any infections
  • Examine your groin for any sign of swelling, redness, bleeding, or discharge.
  • Consult the doctor if you struggle with any pain or have a fever, bleeding, or shortness of breath.
  • Eat a heart-healthy diet.
  • Avoid smoking.

Potential risks that you need to know about:
The healthcare provider team will explain all the risks beforehand to you. Some of the risks may involve:

  • Valve leaks
  • Pacemakers
  • Kidney damage
  • Vessel damage
  • Stroke
  • Minimal possibility of not surviving the procedure.
