Dr Malik and his team have published another paper on the topic of TransCatheter Aortic Valve Intervention (TAVI or TAVR).
He said: “We know TAVI can be done for your own aortic valve that is diseased, or inside a surgical Tissue aortic (or even mitral) valve. This article covers the concept of the failing TAVI valve and how to treat it. As patients survive longer after TAVI, some will experience degeneration of this valve too. We need to predict why, and try to prevent it. We also need to work out how to treat this problem. This could be with a further TAVI inside the TAVI.”
