What is severe aortic stenosis?

Severe aortic stenosis occurs when the heart's aortic valve opening narrows, restricting the flow of blood flow to the rest of your body. This narrowing results when the valve leaflets become stiff, reducing their flexibility and ability to open and close properly. Learn more about the symptoms and causes here.

TAVR is a less invasive procedure that replaces the aortic valve without opening your chest to reach the heart. Patients who undergo TAVR typically experience a faster recovery time and less discomfort.
