Description

Among the most recently developed procedures for treating heart disease in a minimally invasive way are the techniques for percutaneous treatment of valvular heart disease. These are important advances because the only alternative is open heart surgery, which is not an option for many high-risk patients.  This issue provides a detailed description of several percutaneous procedures, including trans-catheter aortic valve implantation.
