The article presents information about percutaneous heart valve (PHV) replacement for patients with aortic stenosis. It is noted that aortic stenosis is the most common valvular heart disease. Aortic stenosis patients undergo diagnostic testing before PHV implantation. After the surgery, patients are put in the critical area for recovery from general anesthesia and maintenance of blood circulation.
