NICE Guidance – Trans-Catheter Aortic Valve Insertion (TAVI)

TAVI is recommended by NICE especially if surgical aortic valve replacement is deemed too high risk. (NICE TAVI IPG 28th march). When choosing a consultant, you should consider the whole team required to do a TAVI. It is worth asking how many cases the TEAM has done together. For example, our team at LCC have done nearly 100 together. It is a complex procedure and teamwork in assessment, delivery and follow-up are essential.
