About this clinic

Heart valves can become tight or leaky over time. It can cause people to feel short of breath, chest pain, very tired or faint. For some people, the risks of open-heart surgery are too high. "Transcatheter" refers to treating a diseased valve by inserting a small plastic tube in the leg or chest instead of using open heart surgery.

The Transcatheter Heart Valve (THV) Clinic at St. Paul’s is for people with one or more heart valves that do not work properly. This is where you can learn about treatment options and resources. The THV Clinic aims to help you decide if this type of procedure might be an option for your condition.
