PARTNER Trial - Treatment for Severe Aortic Stenosis

Stanford participated in the PARTNER Trial, the first randomized clinical trial comparing the efficacy of using a transcatheter heart valve called "TAVI" - which is implanted percutaneously through an artery in the groin directly into the beating heart - with routine medical therapy, which includes aortic balloon valvuloplasty to relieve symptoms.
