Identifying and treating aortic stenosis

Chest pain, dizziness and shortness of breath can all be symptoms of aortic stenosis – a narrowing of the aortic valve opening.

In this podcast hear St John of God Subiaco Hospital cardiologist Dr Eric Yamen talk about aortic stenosis and a procedure called Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) - a minimally invasive treatment which can make a big difference to patients’ quality of life.

The benefit of TAVI in the treatment of aortic stenosis is that it results in less recovery time and pain for patients. Listen below to find out more.
