Heart Institute Offers New Surgery

A team of Oklahoma Heart Institute (OHI) physicians, led by Drs. Kamran Muhammad, Wayne Leimbach Jr., and Paul Kempe, along with Drs. Clorinda Robles and Mark Halterman of Cardiac Anesthesiology, recently performed the first Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) procedure in Oklahoma without the use of general anesthesia. The 81-year-old patient was sedated using monitored anesthesia care (MAC) such that she had no discomfort or pain during the procedure but did not require general anesthesia, intubation or mechanical ventilation.

TAVR is a minimally invasive, life-saving procedure for patients with aortic stenosis who would be considered high-risk for traditional open-heart surgery for valve replacement. Often, these patients are also poor candidates for general anesthesia, intubation and mechanical ventilation as well.
