Rebirth Of A Heart Valve: Franciscan Health Surgeon First In World To Use Device
Article from the Franciscan Health website. This page provides some excerpts from the article.
“… A patient who received a first-in-the-world tricuspid valve procedure as part of a new national clinical trial at Franciscan Health Heart Center is home and recovering well.”
“Another recent innovation involves a procedure based on the HAART Aortic Annuloplasty. The operation uses a fabric-covered frame – about the diameter of an index finger – that strengthens the internal structure of the aortic heart valve and allows repair of valves that might otherwise be replaced.”
