How about a 90 year of with previous Aortic valve surgery and a a lot of metalwork in the aorta. A new TAVI valve was placed and the patient did very well. TAVI (Transcatheter Aortic valve Intervention) is a remarkable treatment for those with aortic valve disease in whom open heart surgery is anything but low risk.

This patient was at intermediate but not high risk for open heart surgery. The new TAVI valve appeared to develop a clot on it. Dr Malik used a novel strategy of a NOAC (blood thinner) rather than Warfarin. The patient is doing very well one year later, with the valve much improved and functioning well.
