Aortic valve disease

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!

thanks. Meredith

Re: Aortic valve disease

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.

Re: Aortic valve disease

Do you know what it's called? How would I look it up? I've never done this before...

Re: Aortic valve disease

Hi well it is the very words used in the first post with the phrase involving the non surgical valve.

Re: Aortic valve disease

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?

Re: Aortic valve disease

I have found out the company name I was looking for. It's Heartbridge.

It's very interesting. If anyone has any experience with this company, I would love to hear it.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Aortic valve disease

How are you doing? I am a newbie too.

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.
