Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve Replacement (TPVR)


Transcatheter pulmonary valve replacement (TPVR) is a minimally invasive medical procedure used to replace a damaged or malfunctioning pulmonary valve in the heart. This procedure involves the insertion of a catheter through a blood vessel, typically in the groin, and guiding it to the heart to place a new valve without the need for open-heart surgery.
