Valve-within-Valve Per Transcatheter Approach
Sometimes a previously implanted surgical valve will become stenotic or leaky and will need to be replaced. If the Heart Team determines that you are a candidate, catheter-based treatment may be an option. This less invasive procedure allows a new valve to be inserted within your failing surgical valve. Once the new valve is expanded, it pushes the old valve leaflets out of the way and the tissue in the replacement valve takes over the job of regulating blood flow.
