Heart Valve Technology

This channel includes news and new device innovations about heart valve technologies, including the aortic valve, mitral valve, pulmonic valve, and tricuspid valve. This includes information on transcatheter valve technologies like transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR, or implantation TAVI), transcatheter mitral valve repair or replacement (TMVR), transcatheter and surgical valve repairs, and surgical replacement valves. Newer devices are now being used for transcatheter tricuspid valve repair replacement (TTVR).
