Transcatheter Mitral Valve Replacement (TMVR)


Transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) is a minimally invasive medical procedure that involves replacing a damaged or diseased mitral valve in the heart with an artificial valve. This procedure is performed using a catheter, which is inserted through a blood vessel in the groin or chest, and guided to the heart to replace the mitral valve without the need for open-heart surgery.
