Aortic Valve Stenosis

Aortic stenosis means your aortic valve does not open widely enough to allow adequate blood flow from your heart to your aorta.

At the UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute, we offer the full range of treatments for aortic stenosis including surgical and minimally invasive valve replacement. In fact, we were one of the first medical centers to perform transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) — a minimally invasive treatment for severe aortic stenosis.
