CardioSmart has a variety of resources to help patients better understand aortic stenosis and compare treatment options including transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), open heart surgery, and symptom management (medication only). The resources include general information about aortic stenosis such as symptoms and how the condition affects the body, risks and benefits of different treatment options, real patient stories, and more. (Note: the videos were posted in February 2018 and do not reflect updates from the 2020 Heart Valve Disease Guideline.)
