If you’ve been diagnosed with severe aortic stenosis, you’re not alone
Affecting about 7% of all people over the age of 65, aortic stenosis is the most common valvular heart disease in the world.1 If your physician has recommended a Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) procedure, you have a severe form of aortic stenosis. We’ll help you learn more about your condition, the procedure, and what to expect as you move forward with treatment.
Until recently, Allen Brady thought the time he served in Vietnam was the fight of his life. Then he was diagnosed with severe aortic stenosis.

It’s like 20 years ago.” Watch Allen’s inspiring story.
