Percutaneous Heart Valve Therapy - Options, Risks and Benefits

Abstract

Transcatheter valve therapy is emerging as an effective option for aortic valve stenosis and mitral regurgitation. In 1992, Anderson demonstrated the feasibility of percutaneous implantation of catheter-based valve prosthesis. Since then, many technical and device advances have been made, and transcatheter aortic valve implantation and mitral valve repair have became a concrete alternative to surgical replacement.
