Abstract :

The different types of transcatheter valve therapies for individuals with either aortic or mitral valve disease are outlined. These therapies have widened therapeutic options for patients, even for those who previously had no viable surgical options. In the US, about 78,000 transcatheter aortic valve implantation procedures and 10,000 transcatheter mitral valve repairs take place annually.
