Abstract
For people with aortic valve stenosis (the aortic valve is narrowed or doesn’t open properly, so blood can’t flow easily from your heart to the rest of your body), the usual treatment is open heart surgery to repair or replace the aortic valve. However, for people who are too ill or who have other medical problems, your health care team may recommend the TAVI (transcatheter aortic valve intervention) procedure instead. During a TAVI procedure, an aortic valve is implanted through a catheter (flexible tube). This pamphlet explains getting ready for admission to the hospital, getting ready for your stay in the hospital, preparing ahead for going home, what to expect on the day of your procedure and during and after the TAVI, getting ready for discharge, and going home.
