Welcome to the TAVI Service

Leeds is one of the largest TAVI centres in the United Kingdom.

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) allows the aortic valve to be replaced without the need for open-heart surgery, and is therefore a good option for patients in whom the risks of open-heart surgery are unacceptably high.

We, the cardiologists who carry out the TAVI procedures, are all committed to improving the service that we provide to our patients.

Please see the left-hand menu for further information.

TAVI in Leeds continues to grow to meet increasing demand.

A robust TAVI pathway and MDT process have contributed to excellent outcomes:

  • Early and late survival in Leeds is the highest in the UK in identical risk patients.
  • Outcomes in carefully selected nonagenarian patients are outstanding.
  • Quality of life benefits are substantial.

Innovation and research related to TAVI in Leeds have brought substantial research income, clinical savings, and high-tariff publications.
