Abstract

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has become a well-established therapy for inoperable and high-risk patients of Aortic Stenosis in most of the part of the world. The technological advancements in the hemodynamic performance and design of valve prosthesis and also the data provided by various trials regarding the safety and efficacy of TAVR have widened the scope of TAVR in intermediate and low-risk groups also. The main focus of this review is to discuss the feasibility of TAVR in developing countries. Along with this review, it also gives a detailed outlook of the pros and cons of TAVR along with insight into the future of TAVR and its adoption into the low-risk group.
