The first patient visit for the Medtronic sponsored study occured at Morton Plan Center for Advanced Valve and Structural Heart Care. Mitral Valve Regurgitation afflicts over 4 million people and open heart surgery is the only option for those suffering–not an option for many.  Lang Lin, MD, interventional cardiologist and co-principal investigator is quoted that “this trial holds great promise for those individuals.”
The first patient visit occured at Morton Plan Center for Advanced Valve and Structural Heart Care is a multi-disciplinary team including cardiovascular surgeons, cardiologists, and cardiac anesthesiologists focused on working together to determine the best medical or surgical options for each patient.
