Susan & Her INSPIRIS RESILIA Valve Go Viral!
By Adam Pick on August 1, 2019
The support and the encouragement that the patients in our community provide each other is simply amazing!
For example, I recently posted a post-op picture of Susan Richards at our Facebook page. As you may know, Susan recently received a new INSPIRIS RESILIA aortic valve due to a bicuspid aortic valve and aortic stenosis. Within seconds of posting her picture, the patients at Facebook rallied around Susan. As you can see below, Susan’s photo received over 4,700 Likes, 454 Comments and 219 Timeline Shares!
As for Susan’s latest update… She has been discharged from the hospital! Woo-Whoo!!!
Specific to her aortic valve replacement selection, Susan and Dr. Peter Pavlina, her surgeon, appear to be planning ahead given her young age. Susan posted, “I have an INSPIRIS RESILIA valve, size 23, which will be able to handle a TAVR procedure in the future. Lots of positives!”
Congratulations to Susan, Dr. Pavlina and her medical team on the success of her procedure!
And, many thanks to each of you for showing your support, your encouragement, and your love to Susan during her early recovery!!!
