About Piedmont Heart Institute’s Center for Aortic Disease
Nearly 1.5 million people in the United States suffer from aortic stenosis, a progressive heart valve disease that narrows or obstructs the aortic valve of the heart. Piedmont Heart Institute now offers this cutting-edge, heart valve replacement option for patients suffering from aortic stenosis.
“We’re proud to be among the select heart teams across the nation to be performing this procedure,” said Vivek Rajagopal, interventional cardiologist with Piedmont Heart. “Being able to give qualified patients who have previously been considered inoperable and high-risk a chance to get better and have a higher quality of life is rewarding.”
The recently FDA-approved Edwards SAPIEN transcatheter aortic heart valve provides a treatment option for patients at high-risk for aortic stenosis and patients who were previously deemed inoperable for traditional open heart surgery. This procedure, called Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI), allows the diseased heart valve to be replaced with a balloon-expandable heart valve which enters the body through a catheter typically placed in the leg, eliminating the need for open-heart surgery or stopping the patient’s heart.
