Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement
The Spectrum Health TAVR Clinic brings groundbreaking advances to the treatment of severe aortic stenosis. The clinic offers new options for aortic valve replacement to high-risk patients who were previously deemed unsuitable for traditional treatments. As we have continued to develop expertise, we are now able to offer treatment to lower-risk patients who would still benefit from the advanced technology and outcomes presented by TAVR.
We are pleased to offer both FDA-approved TAVR valves:
The Edwards SAPIEN 3
The CoreValve® Evolut R System.
Spectrum Health is enrolling patients in the Medtronic CoreValve® U.S. Pivotal Trial. This minimally invasive aortic valve replacement procedure is an alternative for patients with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis or extreme risk for aortic valve surgery.
