Betsy Evans of Leeds General Infirmary in the United Kingdom presents a discussion on TAVI and surgery for prosthetic valve failure. She discusses the background of biological valve implant rate, rate of TAVI, and structural valve deterioration and treatment options. She focuses on two treatment techniques: redo AVR surgery and the TAVI valve-in-valve procedure.
