Heart Valve Journals Spotlight: Duane Hunt’s Mitral Valve Repair

By Adam Pick on January 29, 2010

Two weeks ago, we introduced a unique website feature known as Heart Valve Journals.  I’m very happy to report that the number of new journals launched – by patients and caregivers – has soared!

One of the most active patients within this new community is Duane Hunt from Winter Haven, Florida. Not only is Duane active, he is a very funny writer. Plus, Duane’s friends and family are showering him with support as his Guestbook already has 175+ comments.

 


Duane And Peggy Hunt

 

Most importantly, Duane had mitral valve repair surgery due to mitral valve regurgitation… yesterday!!!

Peggy, Duane’s wife, has done a great job keeping everybody updated as Dr. Kevin Accola, M.D. of the Florida Hospital Cardiovascular Institute was able to successfully repair Duane’s valve.

Keep on tickin’ Duane!
