Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI)

The aortic valve controls the blood flow from your heart to the rest of the organs. TAVI is a minimally invasive procedure to replace your damaged or diseased aortic valve with a new man-made one using a narrow tube called a catheter. This is inserted into a large blood vessel in your groin or chest.

Why choose Manipal Hospitals

Manipal Hospital is equipped with a contemporary Cardiac Catheterization Lab furbished with the latest high-precision technology to undertake intricate surgeries such as TAVI. Our specialized team of interventional cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, and cardiac anaesthetists who specialize in cardiac ultrasound imaging come together to perform this implantation procedure.


TAVI is a minimally invasive catheterisation technique to set a defective aortic valve right. The aortic valve usually opens when blood is pumped from your heart to the rest of your body. When it cannot open and close properly, it puts excessive strain on your heart causing dizziness, blackouts or breathlessness. 


While TAVI is a standard procedure for aortic valve malfunction there could be a few risks stemming from this technique. In some cases, patients with valve replacements may have an increased risk of developing an infection of the heart valve and the surrounding tissue called endocarditis or even excessive bleeding in the elderly

Success of TAVI

TAVI has emerged as the best possible alternative to open-heart surgical procedures in aortic valve replacement. With this technique's rising popularity in terms of durability and safety, it is here to stay.

Infection control protocol

Our patients are at the centre of our safety and comfort protocol at all times. Following the TAVI procedure, you will be monitored in our Surgical Intensive Care Unit for at least 24 hours to prevent any kind of infections or side effects. 

Left Atrial Appendage and Closure

The left atrial appendage (LAA) is a small, ear-shaped sac in the muscle wall of the left atrium - the top left chamber of the heart. A normal heart contracts with each heartbeat, and the blood in the left atrium and LAA is squeezed out into the left ventricle -the bottom left chamber of the heart. In a person with an irregular heartbeat, the electrical impulses that control the heartbeat are fast and chaotic, not giving the atria time to contract or effectively squeeze blood into the ventricles. This can cause blood to collect and can form clots in the LAA and atria. When blood clots are pumped out of the heart, they can cause a stroke. If you are at risk of developing clots in the left atrium or LAA, your doctor may recommend a procedure to seal off your LAA. This can reduce your risk of stroke and eliminate the need to take blood-thinning medication.

Solutions of LAA

Implants are the latest in treatment options for LAA. The WATCHMAN device is implanted through your skin in the Cath lab under general anaesthesia. A catheter sheath is inserted into a vein near your groin and guided across the septum, the muscular wall that divides the right and left sides of your heart, to the opening of the LAA. The device is placed in the opening of the LAA. This seals off the LAA and keeps it from releasing clots.
