New Option for Heart Valve Replacement

Emory University Hospital is one of five hospitals nationwide, and the first hospital in the Southeast, to study a non-surgical treatment option for severe aortic heart valve disease, commonly called aortic stenosis.

Emory University interventional cardiologists are performing percutaneous aortic valve replacement as part of a clinical trial comparing this procedure with traditional, open-heart surgery or medical therapy in high-risk patients with aortic stenosis.
