Procedure in Indiana Provides Important New Option for Heart Valve Repair
Heart Valve Repair with the HAART Aortic Annuloplasty Device
Article from the Franciscan Health website. This page provides some excerpts from the article.
“… five patients were first in the state of Indiana, and some of the first in the nation, to receive a new life-saving aortic heart valve repair with a very unique implant. The surgery was performed by nationally recognized cardiothoracic surgeon, Marc W. Gerdisch, MD, FACS, FACC, FHRS.”
“Dr. Gerdisch utilized the new FDA-approved device designed to re-size, reshape and stabilize the aortic valve. All are recovering and doing well after the procedure, called HAART Aortic Annuloplasty.”
“One of the first things that strikes you about an innovative new heart valve implant is just how small and simple it looks – it is a small fabric covered frame about the diameter of your index finger. However, this tiny, ingenious device is making a huge difference in the lives of five patients at Franciscan Health Heart Center Indianapolis, and it is ultimately on track to help hundreds of thousands across the United States and beyond.”
