Overview

We will conduct imaging tests to assess your heart valve and determine if you are a candidate for valvuloplasty, a procedure in which a catheter, or thin tube, with an attached balloon is advanced from a blood vessel in your groin through the aorta into your heart. Once we place the catheter in the stiff valve, we will inflate the balloon until the flaps of the valve open. We then will remove the catheter.
