Additional Information

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is a treatment for patients with severe aortic stenosis who would otherwise be deemed at high risk for surgical aortic valve replacement (AVR). The TAVI procedure is minimally invasive and so allows patients to recover post operatively more quickly. Following TAVI, patients are generally admitted to our coronary care unit, are able to mobilise the same day of surgery, experience minimal pain and have a short length of stay in hospital.

North Shore Private Hospital is one of only a few private hospitals that are accredited to offer this procedure and have the experience of over 200 TAVI procedures.

North Shore Private Hospital’s Structural Heart Team have been performing TAVI procedures since 2013 at North Shore Private Hospital. Once identified as a potential TAVI patient, a patient usually comes into hospital for a few days to conduct pre-operative tests. Our Multidisciplinary Structural Heart Team then meet to determine the best treatment for the patient.

Referrals for potential TAVI patients can be made to our interventional cardiologists or cardiothoracic surgeons, or call our Structural Heart Co-Ordinator on (02) 8425 3006 or email baera@ramsayhealth.com.au. They will then make the necessary assessments and organise the TAVI workup process if appropriate.
