TriHealth Heart Institute Offers TAVR Surgery

Cincinnati, OH

Good Samaritan Hospital, Cincinnati, OH, is one of just 150 locations in the U.S. to offer transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) procedures, a minimally invasive treatment option for patients with aortic stenosis who are not candidates for open-heart surgery. A team of cardiac surgeons, interventional cardiologists and other staff at the TriHealth Heart Institute performed their first two TAVR procedures in early April.
