Heart Doc VIP with Dr. Joel Kahn

Sep 29, 2023

Leaky and blocked heart valves can lead to significant distress and even result in death. Over the past two decades, medical advancements have enabled some patients to avoid open heart surgery, while still having their valve issues addressed. A notable example is the TAVR procedure, which addresses a blocked aortic valve without the need to cut open the chest. Even more recent than TAVR are techniques aimed at repairing severely leaking mitral and tricuspid valves. In this episode, Dr. Kahn offers the latest insights into these critical medical developments.
