TAVR surgery is a unique VR training that may be used as scientific and educational material for cardiac surgeons, interventional cardiologists, and patients interested in the heart-shunt surgery process. In a nutshell, it’s aimed at providing users with a better understanding of the procedures associated with transcatheter aortic valve (TAVR).

With more than 100 years of history, heart shunt surgery is still a relevant method of treatment in treating cardiovascular illnesses, such as heart attacks, peripheral vascular disorder, or coronary artery disease. Moreover, thanks to modern trends in technology development, it has reached a fundamentally new level of accuracy and safety. Thus, TAVR surgery provides new opportunities for healthcare providers, medical students, and patients.

Leveraging VR technology, we managed to combine life-like 3D visualizations with a severe surgery process explained by best-in-class heart surgeons backed by years of practical experience.

How it


Once users wear VR headsets, they’re immersed in a virtual operating room.


Next to the operating table, they can see the screen demonstrating the patient’s vital signs. Additionally, users can move around the operating room.


What makes this VR experience truly illustrative is the ability to switch to different body systems (skeletal, muscular, and cardiovascular).


To start the operation, it’s necessary to press the red “Start” button. It’s marked with a popup to make it easier for the users to navigate.


When the operation starts, the users grab the interatrial shunt device while seeing how it plugs into the patient’s cardiovascular system and reaches the heart.


Our team worked from the initial concept to the full deployment of the finished module. Hence, Smart Tek created this MVP (Minimum Viable Product) to unleash the promising potential of VR technology in demonstrating heart surgery processes.

We believe TAVR Surgery is an excellent contribution to the training of highly qualified specialists in this field. Yet, the further away, the more incredible the results VR can provide. That’s why TAVR Surgery is just the starting point in our further achievements in terms of heart surgery & technologies.
