You may have heard of a TAVI procedure. Perhaps you, or someone close to you, has even been recommended they have the procedure done. It can feel overwhelming to hear, and you’ve no doubt got a few questions.
Firstly, you may have wondered what a TAVI procedure is? TAVI stands for Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation, which won’t mean much to those outside of the medical profession. But in short, it is a minimally invasive procedure to fix a damaged aortic valve. During a TAVI procedure, an artificial valve will be implanted into your heart.
It’s a procedure that Dr Sonny Palmer from St Vincent’s Private Hospital has been performing since 2014 and it has come a long way over the last 10 years.
