This resource series, curated by the BGS Cardiovascular SIG, brings together key principles and guidelines on the management of cardiovascular disease in older adults. 

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) is a minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of severe aortic stenosis which aims to provide a less invasive alternative to surgery. This involves inserting a new valve through a catheter, usually by way of a large blood vessel at the top of the leg, into the heart and inside the existing faulty aortic valve.
