World War II POW and Hero Gets a New Valve
Lester always had a way of making things happen. Suffering from severe aortic stenosis, but not a candidate for open heart surgery, Lester knew he had to find another option. He conducted his own research and discovered TAVR - a less invasive treatment alternative. Lester received TAVR, which allowed him to see a day he never thought possible.
TAVR is a treatment option for certain patients who have severe aortic stenosis but are at intermediate risk or higher for open heart surgery. Please talk to a TAVR Doctor to determine which treatment option is right for you.
TAVR involves risks, the most serious of which include death, stroke, bleeding and vascular complications. Please click on the Important Risk Information link below for a full description of risk information.
