    TAVR is a minimally invasive procedure that allows cardiologists and cardiac surgeons to implant a prosthetic aortic valve through a catheter placed in the femoral artery, much in the same way a cardiac catheterization is performed. It can provide a treatment option for patients with severe, symptomatic aortic stenosis who have been determined by a heart team to be at intermediate risk for open-heart surgery. In this segment, Jesse Jorgensen, MD shares what you need to know about TAVR and the questions you should ask your doctor before considering this procedure.
