While listening to Julio Palmaz speak at a conference in Scottsdale, Arizona in February 1989, Henning Rud Andersen was inspired to concept implanting heart valves percutaneously. Within 3 months, Dr. Andersen made and implanted the first transcatheter heart valve in an animal model. Today, TAVI is the main treatment of severe aortic stenosis in many parts of the world. Join Drs. Mohamad Alkhouli and David R. Holmes for a virtual conversation with Dr. Andersen about his extraordinary journey with TAVI.
