The article provides information on transcatheter and transapical aortic valve replacement (AVR). Replacement through transcatheter and transapical techniques should be used only in patients in whom traditional surgical replacement is deemed an unacceptable risk. The advantages of less-invasive insertion techniques for higher risk AVR are discussed.
