Homograft Video: Aortic Valve Replacement Dr. Kevin Accola

By Adam Pick on August 5, 2008

One of the most, highly regarded cardiothoracic surgeons I know is Dr. Kevin Accola from Florida.

Lucky for us, I just found a video that features Dr. Accola as he works on a patient requiring aortic valve replacement due to a congenital, bicuspid aortic valve. As you can see in this story Dr. Accola uses a homograft valve to replacement the patient’s defective valve.
