Once you have been identified by your cardiologist and cardiac surgeon as a good candidate for a TAVR procedure and your surgery date is set, the following information will be very helpful.
You will be scheduled to come in 3 – 4 days prior to your procedure. Before you come in, a representative of our Pre-Admission Testing (PAT) department will contact you to review your current medications, give you instructions, and schedule the time for you to come in for pre-surgery tests to be completed.
Bring the following:
If you have recently been hospitalized or you have been seen in urgent care for any reason, please inform your physician or the TAVR Program Manager right away.
Hibiclens is a skin cleanser that kills germs for up to 24 hours after you use it. It contains a strong antiseptic (liquid used to kill germs and bacteria) called chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG). You can buy Hibiclens at your local pharmacy.
You will change into your hospital gown, removing everything, including all undergarments.
An IV and solution will be started, and if further medical information is needed, it will be taken at this time.
Your nurse/tech will clip the hair on both sides of your groin area.
You will meet your Anesthesiologist in Short Stay. Be prepared to ask your questions about anesthesia.
Surgery staff will come to your room and bring you to the surgery operating room.
For more information about the TAVR procedure and our Cardiovascular Center, please call 818.855.8500 ext. 5691.
At this time, this procedure is performed by Dr. Jahandar Saleh and Dr. Aamer Jamali.
