Has anyone heard of a company that coordinates non-surgical aortic valve replacement for Americans in Europe? I am trying to get information for my Dad, who is very confused and not internet savvy. I'm not sure I understand any of this either!
Hi the information being looked for can be put in the search window. Yes it is available over here and over there. Looks like they use a blood vessel to thread it up a leg and up into the chest if that helps.

Thanks so much! I was looking for the acronym TAVI, transcatheter aortic valve intervention. That sound like it. I heard there is a company in Europe that flies people there to have it done. Have you also heard of this?
WHAT IS A NON SURGICAL AORTIC VALVE REPLACEMENT??? I've never heard of it.
I need a aortic vavle replacement but was told open heart surgery is the only way & that I am not a candidate for the surgery. PLEASE REPLY. Thanks.
