Procedures Performed

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) refers to a minimally invasive procedure used to replace the aortic valve. The TAVR program at St. Joseph Hospital is the highest volume program in Orange County, with over 600 successful procedures since 2016.


The Mitraclip device is used to correct leakiness of the mitral valve, also known as mitral regurgitation. When the heart pumps, the mitral valve ensures that all blood moves forward into the body. With severe mitral regurgitation, as much as 50% of the blood is pumped backward. This can lead to buildup of fluid in the lungs, shortness of breath, fatigue, and swelling in the legs.Dr. Aidan R. Raney performs Mitraclip procedures at St. Joseph Hospital in Orange. This is the highest volume program in Orange County; Dr. Raney performs around 75 MitraClip procedures per year.

Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) Closure

PFO refers to “Patent Foramen Ovale,” a small hole between the top chambers of the heart. This connection is present in all people in utero, but usually closes after birth. In certain cases, blood clots can travel through this small connection and cause a stroke. These patients may benefit from PFO closure.

When patients are in atrial fibrillation, a clot can form in the atrium (upper chamber of the heart), which can then travel to the brain and cause a stroke. Most of the clots form in an area called the left atrial appendage. The majority of patients with atrial fibrillation are treated with blood thinners to prevent blood clots from forming in this area.
