Heart Valve Replacement Surgery: CoreValve TAVI Clinical Trial Video - El Camino Innovates

The Medtronic CoreValve® U.S. Pivotal Trial offers an approach to heart valve surgery that enables surgeons to replace damaged heart valves by going through a small incision in the skin rather than opening the chest to replace the valve. Heart valve replacement is made necessary when aortic stenosis occurs, a condition that occurs due to narrowing of the aortic valve. This video presents the new CoreValve® System approach to heart valve surgery and covers the following topics: the definition of aortic stenosis along with symptoms and treatments, which people are good candidates for this approach and what we are learning from the ongoing studies.

"We are thrilled to be involved in a new trial that offers patients that are at high risk for surgery for aortic valve stenosis to receive a valve through a percutaneous approach. Which basically means we can do it through delivery through the skin rather than actually opening the chest to deliver the valve. So, for patients that have aortic stenosis, have other medical problems, or are advanced in their age, this is an opportunity for them to get treatment that they otherwise might not have, and allow them to enjoy the rest of their life with relatively good quality."
