How Cerebral Embolic Protection Devices are Beneficial in TAVR?


Cerebral Embolic Protection Devices are so beneficial in TAVR. These are used to reduce the risk of brain stroke while TAVR. Keystone Heart develops and manufactures cerebral embolic protection devices. The main benefit of TAVR is attenuated by the occurrence of major disabling stroke which is associated with increased mortality and early-reduced quality of life.

Title: How Cerebral Embolic Protection Devices are Beneficial in TAVR?

Keystone Heart
Keystone Heart is focused on protecting the brain
from emboli to reduce the risk of brain infarcts
during TAVR, surgical valve replacement, atrial
fibrillation ablation and other structural heart
Warning Signs of Heart Attack
Any disaster comes with a warning sign, usually.
The human body has its own way of expressing the
occurrence of possible disaster, especially the
heart attack or myocardial infarction. The blood
flow to the heart is blocked, a heart attack
occurs. The blockage occurs mostly due to the
accumulation of fat and cholesterol in the
arteries that carry the blood. This leads to
damage of the heart muscle.

The common warning signs of heart attack are
Pressure, tightness and pain in the chest
  • Sometimes, this symptom is mistaken as the effect
    of gas. One should definitely raise an alarm
    without any delay, if the pain is excruciating
    enough and is felt like a squeeze in the chest or
    even in the arms, further spreading to the neck,
    jaw and at the back side..

  • Feeling the urge to throw up is another symptom
    which however, is often associated with upset
    stomach, indigestion, acidity and gas. One may
    even feel some pain in the stomach and that again
    is mistaken by the stomach problem.

Shortness of breath
  • One may also feel short of breath as if, had been
    running or been into some physical activity for
    quite some time. In case, this happens really
    during the physical activity, the symptom may be
    taken for granted.

Fatigue or Extreme Tiredness
If all of a sudden, without any reason, the
person starts feeling fatigue, it has to be
reported as an emergency. This happens as the
heart finds it difficult to pump due to
interrupted blood supply. The body feels extreme
tiredness due to the lack of oxygen.
Any heart surgery comprises of a lot probable
complications that pose threat to life in some or
the other way. The doctors however, take all the
precautions for their prevention, like in the
procedure Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation
(TAVI), cerebral embolic protection (CEP) devices
are used to avoid any possible stroke led by any
clot, bubble or debris released during the
