Cleveland Clinic Video Special – Mitral Valve Repair Video
By Adam Pick on December 15, 2007
As the leading cardiac care center in the world, The Cleveland Clinic Cardiac Care Center is known for its leading edge research and treatment of valvular problems and disorders. I have been very lucky to meet several members from the TCC team including Dr. Gosta Pettersson and Dr. Eric Roselli.
Here is an interesting video with Dr. Mihaljevic about robotic mitral valve repair that I thought you might like. So, without further ado… Click on the link above if you would like to see this mitral valve repair video from The Cleveland Clinic. Or, click here to learn more about repairing diseased mitral valves.
Keep on tickin!

I have a 20 year old niece that just had a valve replacement surgery. She was very sick a week prior to this surgery and the doctors determined that she had a bacteria infection on her heart. Then they discovered her valve leaking and she was rushed to surgery on the 3rd day following this find. After surgery we were told that one valve was hanging by a thread basically and another had completely deteriared. Now she is doing much better but there is still the concern of the bateria infection. The doctors will continue to treat her for that. I said all this to ask… Is there any web cite that you know of that can give me information on any of this? Could the bacteria cause the valves to fall apart?
Any information would be great
