Structural Heart

The Structural Heart Program at The Cardiac & Vascular Institute provides minimally invasive procedures to treat life-threatening valve disorders and structural heart defects.

Heart valve disease occurs if one or more of your heart valves do not work well which can cause issues with blood flow and threaten overall health. The treatment plans can be complex, with many factors determining who might be a candidate for medical therapy or valve repair or replacement. Through collaboration between TCAVI’s Interventional Cardiologists and area cardiothoracic surgeons, our Valve Clinic provides a multidisciplinary team approach with treatment for our patients with structural heart diseases and conditions.

TCAVI Structural Heart Program & Cardiovascular Research

Our Structural Heart Program continues to participate at the forefront of cardiovascular research by participating in global clinical research trials, including the TMVR (Transcatheter Mitral Valve Replacement) and the Tricuspid Valve Clip. There are multiple clinical trials offered for structural heart disease in addition to various other cardiac and vascular clinical trials.
