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.

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 AdventHealth Cardiovascular Institute (formerly Florida Hospital) was able to successfully repair Duane’s valve.

Thank you, Adam, for this wonderful journal. I have been able to update friends, family, and fellow heart valvers as Duane goes through this journey. It has been great to communicate so efficiently, especially as things have taken an unexpected turn. We are grateful!
