Treatment options for heart valve disease

If any of the heart’s four valves (aortic, mitral, pulmonary and tricuspid) become diseased or damaged, blood might not leave your heart at the normal rate, or might flow backwards into your heart. OHSU’s heart valve experts can treat all forms of heart valve disease, including regurgitation, stenosis, insufficiency, prolapse and endocarditis. Many treatment options are available to repair or replace valves, including:

  • Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR)
  • Percutaneous pulmonary valve (Melody Valve) replacement
  • Minimally invasive valve surgery
  • Traditional valve surgery
  • Mitral valve repair

Patient story - Don

Don TAVR - Aortic Stenosis

I had acute aortic stenosis. A normal heart valve is about the width of a quarter: Mine was a centimeter. My doctor said I should have open heart surgery, but I wanted to explore other options. A friend of mine had recently had transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), and said great things about it.
